Interferometry

Fast physical optics, as implemented in VirtualLab Fusion, provides the tools for fast simulations of the best-known interferometers

  • Michelson
  • Mach-Zehnder
  • Young

among others, enabling the study of coherence and dispersion effects in the interference patterns. Ray tracing through the systems is also envisaged, with a friendly user interface and easy switching between the two engines.
