Ghost images

Multiple reflections at the different surfaces conforming an optical system may create, on purpose or otherwise, additional physical effects of interest worthy of investigation. The simulation of these phenomena requires a cogent non-sequential theoretical basis, like the one included in VirtualLab Fusion. Investigate, through ray tracing and physical optics, the presence of ghost images and other non-sequential effects in your system with VirtualLab Fusion.

Selected Use Cases

Find detailed technical information in the following selected samples:

Interference fringes in collimated beam are caused by multiple reflections. For perfect AR coating the interference pattern disappears.
