all upcoming news and events
At the LASER exhibition we had numerous discussions about our new Use Cases, which demonstrates the huge potential of the 2nd generation update of VirtualLab Fusion. We would like to thank especially those of you who gave us feedback and comments and thus helped to further improve our Use Cases.
Please find attached some prominent examples that highlight the benefits of the fast physical optics concept of the VirtualLab Fusion 2nd generation technology update. Some of the more remarkable highlights are:
- Automatic modeling selection which makes physical optics modeling as easy as the application of ray tracing.
- Easy switching between ray tracing and physical optics modeling.
- Full flexibility of non-sequential modeling configuration including all or a customized selection of surfaces and gratings orders.
- Unsurpassed flexibility to define detector functions including energy quantities, polarization, coherence, spatiotemporal fs pulse quantities, amplitude and phase, dot diagrams, wavefront error, and aberrations.
The release of the 2nd generation technology update is scheduled for August 2017. Please request of a trial software package and refer in the dialog to “2nd generation technology update”.
We are looking forward to more feedback. For any questions, comments or remarks send a request to service (at) lighttrans.com.
Our teams at Wyrowski Photonics and LightTrans are operating at full stretch for the last sprint in the preparation for the LASER World of PHOTONICS, which is taking place in Munich from June 26 till 29, 2017. We are very excited to inform you that this event will mark the unveiling of our momentous 2nd Generation Field Tracing technology, which will be provided in the form of a new VirtualLab Fusion Update. At the exhibition you can, through our talks and seminars, and of course by visiting us at booth B1.660, discover the breakthrough brought about by Fast Physical Optics modelling and design: a potentially paradigm-shifting theory, underpinning a cogent, technically solid and user-friendly implementation which also includes ray tracing. At LASER World of PHOTONICS we will provide you with technical background information and numerous application examples to illustrate the vast potential of the Fast Physical Optics concept.

The channel is a common platform of the Applied Computational Optics Group of the Institute of Applied Physics (Friedrich-Schiller-University), and the companies Wyrowski Photonics and LightTrans International. Here we will provide you with short videos on the theory and concepts of an exciting new approach in physical optics modeling and design which enables unprecedented fast simulations in physical optics. In 2017 these concepts will be released in our next-generation field-tracing technology in VirtualLab Fusion. We will also provide you with videos on the usage of the software and its applications.
A first playlist of “Getting Started” tutorials is now available, containing the following videos:
- First contact with VirtualLab Fusion
- User Interface
- Built Up Your Own Optical System in VirtualLab Fusion
- Catalogs I-III: Introduction to Catalogs, Interfaces Catalog, Coatings Catalog
- Calculators I-VI: ABCD Law Calculator, Diffraction Angle Calculator, Direction Converter, Fresnel Effects Calculator, Laser Beam Calculator, Modulation Depth Calculator
- Modelling in the Main Window I: Introduction
We will regularly add more footage to the channel, including tutorials for advanced users, use cases, material for education, basics for optical research and development, and application examples. On this channel we will introduce you to the world of Fast Physical Optics.
LightTrans and participating distributors would like to announce the start of the new education initiative. We have introduced the new Education Package of VirtualLab Fusion for academic institutions. The package includes an annual license for teaching purposes including bachelor and master thesis.
The education package of VirtualLab Fusion allows you to enhance the quality of your lectures in optics. The software provides tools for the investigation of basic and advanced physical effects as well as the solution of complex design problems for a wide range of applications.
