Diffractive Lenses

Diffractive lenses are a vital part of numerous optical systems, where they play fundamental practical roles, like

  • correction of chromatic aberration
  • aiding system compactness (reduced size and weight)

VirtualLab Fusion is endowed with the necessary tools to enable the far-from-straight-forward simulation of this family of components, yielding both ray and physical optics results.
