Microlens and microcell arrays
Microcell arrays have been gaining traction of late as yet another element in the world of light shaping. The nature of the unit cell covers
- lenses and other refractive elements (such as freeforms)
- mirrors and
with the added freedom of allowing the unit cells to either be replicated, or distinct from one another. VirtualLab Fusion and its fast physical optics concept permit the ray and physical optics analysis of such devices (in combination with source characteristics like polarization, coherence and dispersion), also enabling their design and optimization through an intuitive, guided user interface.
