fs pulse modeling

VirtualLab Fusion facilitates the propagation of

  • picosecond,
  • femtosecond, and
  • attosecond

pulses through macroscopic and microscopic optical setups. To that end VirtualLab Fusion employs the field tracing concept, which, as the name suggests, traces full electromagnetic fields through the optical setup using a combination of geometrical and physical optics.
