Inclusion of gratings
Simulating imaging systems which include grating elements is a necessary task with practical applications: for instance, to model the behaviour of wafer inspection systems. VirtualLab Fusion facilitates the exercise through its fast physical optics approach, allowing for
- the inclusion of gratings in high-NA systems
- the consideration of realistic diffraction efficiencies
- automatically taking into account vectorial effects
- dealing with holographic optical elements and volume gratings
in both ray and physical optics simulations.
