We are excited to bring you more information on the recent release of VirtualLab Fusion 2nd Generation Technology Update.

We have relaunched our website, decking it with, among other things, an extensive selection of material to illustrate the potential of the 2nd Generation Technology Update of VirtualLab Fusion: use cases demonstrating specific new features of the software, as well as its performance in the following field of application:

Light shaping: Refractive optics - Diffractive optics - Diffusers - Microlens arrays
Optical metrology: Interferometry - Microscopy - Monochromators - Spectrometers
Imaging systems: Diffractive lenses - Advanced PSF/MTF - Ghost images - Inclusion of gratings
Laser systems: Beam delivery - Scanning systems - fs pulse modeling - Crystal modeling
Virtual and mixed reality: Near-eye displays - Waveguide HUDs - Freeform surfaces - Pattern generation

Discover the breakthrough brought about by Fast Physical Optics modeling and design: a potentially paradigm-shifting theory, underpinning a cogent, technically solid and user-friendly implementation which also includes ray tracing. Some highlights of the new technology are summarized in the following points:

- Physical optics modeling often as fast as ray tracing.
- Automatic modeling selection enables physical optics modeling as easy as the application of ray tracing.
- Easy switching between ray tracing and physical optics modeling.
- Inclusion of Maxwell solvers for gratings, diffractive lenses and HOEs on planar and curved surfaces.
- Full flexibility of non-sequential modeling configuration including all or a customized selection of surfaces and gratings orders.
- Switching between sequential and non-sequential modeling forth and back in the same system setup.
- Design of diffractive lenses with fabrication data export.
- Sophisticated source models including lasers, laser diodes with astigmatism, VCSELs, LEDs, partially coherent, fs pulse and x-ray sources.
- Unsurpassed flexibility to define detector functions including energy quantities, polarization, coherence, spatiotemporal fs pulse quantities, amplitude and phase, dot diagrams, wavefront error, and aberrations.
- Integration of customized sources, surfaces, media, detectors and user-defined physical models in ray tracing and physical optics without mentionable reduction of modeling performance.

Use our request form to download a free trial version of the software. Our use cases come with a pdf file and often also a zip file which includes VirtualLab Fusion sample file(s). Using the trial version together with the sample files is the best way to evaluate the potential of VirtualLab Fusion 2nd Generation Technology Update.

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.
