Find out more about us!
We are the general distributor of the optical modeling and design software VirtualLab Fusion and offer software licenses, technical support, and training.
VirtualLab Fusion software provides a pool of interoperable modeling techniques and a platform to connect them.
By that it ensures an unsurpassed control of the balance between accuracy and speed and also an amazing flexibility to model a great variety of sources, components, and detectors.
Users benefit in an ever-growing range of applications, including but not restricted to solutions for diffractive optics, metasurfaces, gratings, diffusers, AR/VR glasses, advanced modeling of lens systems, fiber coupling, ultrashort laser physics, scattering and interferometry.
Our experts support your development team also through technical support projects. The software VirtualLab Fusion is developed and produced by our partner company Wyrowski Photonics.

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
Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) Microscopy
Super-resolution microscopes – optical systems that can achieve resolution beyond Abbe’s well-known diffraction limit – have seen a wide array of uses, as obtaining the maximum possible resolution is one of the key objectives in this field. One approach to achieve this is the Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) concept. Here, a fluorescent specimen is illuminated by two lasers, with one of them shaped by a phase plate into a donut mode. Through chemical processes, the light re-emitted by the sample will stem from the central point of the donut mode only, which can be configured to be much smaller than a classical focal spot, hence increasing the resolution of the image.
The optical modeling and design software VirtualLab Fusion, with its collection of fully interoperable simulation algorithms on a single platform, offers the optical engineer all the necessary tools to fully investigate such systems, including all relevant effects.
In the documents linked below you will find a demonstration of an STED Microscope as well as a detailed look at our Multiple Light Source, a feature of particular importance for this example, since it gives full flexibility to define multiple emitters in a system and to switch each of them on and off independently as desired in order to isolate the different effects which may arise.
Talbot Effect in X-Ray Imaging
X-ray imaging has seen many applications in e.g. the areas of medical imaging and industrial inspection. A common design of X-ray imaging devices is based on the Talbot effect – a diffractive effect, where a periodic structure, like a grating, will produce the exact image of the structure at a certain distance behind it.
Being a software platform based on fast physical optics, VirtualLab Fusion offers suitable solvers to propagate light through such devices, including all diffractive effects. For a short demonstration of VirtualLab Fusion’s capabilities in this area, check out the examples below:
Fourier Transform Spectroscopy
Fourier Transform spectroscopy – an optical metrology method that can be used to measure the optical spectrum of a source with a Michelson interferometer – is a
well-known technique commonly used in a wide range of applications that can go from investigating air or water quality to pharmaceutical analysis.
To help the optical designer understand all the effects that can play a role in such devices, the fast physical optics software VirtualLab Fusion provides all the necessary tools to perform a full propagation through these systems. This naturally includes all coherence and interference effects that are happening at the detector plane. Furthermore, through our new Detector Add-Ons, the user has access to all physical quantities that are of interest, such as irradiance or radiant flux.
Please take a look at the links below to find an example where the temporal coherence length of a polychromatic source is investigated through a Michelson interferometer, as well as some thorough documentation of our Detector Add-Ons.
