Programming Custom Sources

[November 09, 2018]


Sources are yet another extensively customizable module in VirtualLab Fusion: you can adjust at will their wavelength spectrum, spatial coherence properties, transversal shape, and polarization, among others. Of all those, let us at present concentrate on the last two. You can find below a thorough tutorial on the Programmable Light source (which includes a detailed hands-on example) for you to follow, should you ...

Sources are yet another extensively customizable module in VirtualLab Fusion: you can adjust at will their wavelength spectrum, spatial coherence properties, transversal shape, and polarization, among others. Of all those, let us at present concentrate on the last two. You can find below a thorough tutorial on the Programmable Light source (which includes a detailed hands-on example) for you to follow, should you wish to learn to program your own sources. Additionally, we offer another example, in a more condensed format, that illustrates how to generate radially and azimuthally polarized light via programming.

How to Work with the Programmable Light Source in VirtualLab Fusion and Example (Gaussian Beam)
This tutorial will give you the instructions you need to program your own sources in VirtualLab!

Programming Custom Functions

[November 02, 2018]

In our previous news we already pointed to VirtualLab Fusion’s extremely modular nature, combined with its potential for customizability, as one of the fundamental strengths of the software, and went on to highlight programmable surfaces as just one instance thereof. We continue here in the same vein, only this time we move on to transmission functions: a well-known concept from Fourier optics – further enhanced by ...

In our previous news we already pointed to VirtualLab Fusion’s extremely modular nature, combined with its potential for customizability, as one of the fundamental strengths of the software, and went on to highlight programmable surfaces as just one instance thereof. We continue here in the same vein, only this time we move on to transmission functions: a well-known concept from Fourier optics – further enhanced by VirtualLab’s fully vectorial, electromagnetic approach – transmission functions constitute a good way to include idealized components in your optical system. Learn, with the help of the tutorial and examples listed below, how to program your own custom functions in VirtualLab!

How to Work with the Programmable Function & Example (Cylindrical Lens)
Follow the instructions of this tutorial to learn how to program custom transmission functions in VirtualLab Fusion, along the example of an idealized cylindrical lens.

One of the fundamental strengths of the optical modeling and design software VirtualLab Fusion lies in its extremely modular approach: a gateway to provide maximum versatility to the user. This versatility is additionally turbocharged by the fact that many of the aforementioned modules which constitute VirtualLab allow for customization via data import or programming. In this newsletter we take a closer look at how to program custom surfaces. We present below a thorough tutorial on the topic which includes a simple example rolled out in-depth, and one additional programming sample for further illustration.
