Optical Design Software - VirtualLab Fusion

I was fascinated by the almost limitless possibilities of encoding and combining different optical functionalities with simultaneous control of all relevant spot properties [...]. Great & fast support and teaching helped me to understand the physical principles behind and how to simulate them.

I worked with different optical programs over the years and I can tell you frankly that VirtualLab Fusion is my favorite by far! Keep on the good work developing VirtualLab Fusion!

„VirtualLab Fusion offers excellent opportunities in research projects and is perfect for use in teaching, especially since there are many documented application examples available.“
Prof. Dr. Stefan Kontermann, Hochschule RheinMain
Nowadays ray tracing is not sufficient anymore. For a detailed analysis physical optics is required. VirtualLab Fusion is optimized for wave-optical simulations. The results we achieved are excellent. We can highly recommend VirtualLab Fusion. Not only the software is great, but also the support of the whole LightTrans team.
Dr. Benjamin Heck, Raylase GmbH
Excellent program, amazing capabilities, and very user-friendly interface.
Galina Machaviariani, Apple
VirtualLab Fusion is a very promising software that is helping in solving some peculiar diffraction issues that have been causing headaches to the community.
Federico Landini, INAF – Osservatorio Astrofisico di Arcetri
This is one of the most elaborate pieces of software I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. My workflow now is not only faster and more pleasant, but also very well documented with little to no effort on that point.
Dr. Fabian Patrovsky, CDA GmbH
VirtualLab Fusion now comes with the revolutionary Distributed Computing technology that allows you to tremendously speed up your simulations. To demonstrate the power of this new technology we have prepared two examples which you can find in the documents linked below. In the first one, we investigate the performance of a waveguide device by performing a parameter sweep over 101 x 101 field-of-view angles, resulting in a total of 10201 elementary simulations. With Distributed Computing, these simulations can be performed in parallel on different machines in a network, leading, in our specific example, to a 91% reduction in calculation time.
As a second example we have prepared a coherence measurement using a white-light interferometer. There, multiple wavelengths as well as a shift in one of the interferometer arms lead to a total number of 2904 simulations. Through the application of Distributed Computing we can reduce the simulation time from almost one hour to barely 3 minutes.
These examples demonstrate the game-changing reductions in simulation times which can be achieved with the new Distributed Computing Package. Take a look at the examples linked below and see for yourself!
With the latest release of the optical modeling and design software VirtualLab Fusion, version 2023.2, a number of new and helpful tools have been added. But the novelty does not stop there: we have also taken this chance to upgrade some of our previously existing features. In this week’s newsletter we put the spotlight on the Field Inside Component: FMM analyzer, a tool that allows the user visualize and investigate the field distribution inside micro- and nanostructures. The analyzer can now also analyze 2D-periodic structures.
Please take a look at the documents below to find an introduction to the Field Inside Component: FMM analyzer as well as an example where we investigate (and go on to optimize) the reflectivity of an anti-reflection moth-eye structure.
While the Distributed Computing Package and the Parameter Variation Analyzer certainly are the highlights of the latest release of the optical modeling and design software VirtualLab Fusion, 2023.2, we have also implemented a whole set of new features and improvements for our result and data visualization, allowing the user a clearer picture of what is going on in the optical system.
Hence, in this week’s newsletter we want to put the spotlight on two of these additions. Please take a look at the documents linked below to find a guide to our Ray-Results 3D System View, the perfect engine to provide a quick overview of how the system is set up and what the light propagation inside it looks like. With this latest release, we have added options to, for instance, filter out any rays that do not pass a specific aperture, as well as new ruler to easily measure distances in the view. The second document tells you all you need to know about how regions work in VirtualLab Fusion, including the multiple new tools to scale, rotate and shift regions.
