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.

Investigation of Ghost Imaging Effects in Collimation System
