In some of our previous newsletters we already spoke of the potential for customization via programming, which is characteristic of the optical modeling and design software VirtualLab Fusion. In the current newsletter we present another programmable element: detectors. Full accessibility to the vectorial electromagnetic field, paired with the customizability, further increases versatility, facilitating the implementation of any detector function. Find below two documents that illustrate how to work with the Programmable Detector in VirtualLab Fusion: a detailed tutorial and an additional example in a more condensed format.

Fiber-Coupling Lens Design and Tolerance Analysis

[November 29, 2018]
VirtualLab provides not only the tools for the analysis of fiber coupling efficiency, with the in-built Parametric Optimization function, it also enables the design of the coupling lenses efficiently. In fiber optics, it is also known that the coupling efficiency may be sensitive to e.g. misalignment of the system components.

In many fiber-optics systems, a customized design of the coupling lens is often required so as to achieve a good fit with the given input field and working distance. VirtualLab Fusion provides not only the tools for the analysis of fiber-coupling efficiency, with the in-built Parametric Optimization function, but also enables an efficient design of the coupling lenses. In fiber optics, it is also known that coupling efficiency may be sensitive to e.g. misalignment of the components in the system. With the Parameter Run in VirtualLab Fusion, one can conveniently perform a tolerance analysis of such fiber-coupling systems and investigate the influence of different parameters.

Performance Evaluation of Fiber-Coupling Systems

[November 29, 2018]
VirtualLab Fusion enables fast evaluation of fiber coupling systems thanks to the physical-optics-based simulation techniques, fiber-related detectors, and many other helpful tools.
[November 29, 2018]

Optical fibers are widely used in different applications; single-mode fibers especially play an important role in long-distance communications. Launching light into single-mode fibers can be a challenging task in practice. VirtualLab Fusion enables fast evaluation of fiber-coupling systems thanks to the physical-optics-based simulation techniques, fiber-related detectors, and many other helpful tools. For example, one can find the optimal working distance for coupling light into single-mode fibers, and compare the performance of different coupling lenses.

Vectorial Effects in High-NA Focusing Systems

[August 31, 2018]
In high-NA focusing systems, the vectorial nature of light starts to play a non-negligible role and it may affect the focal spot. In VirtualLab the focal fields can be calculated very efficiently.
[August 31, 2018]

In high-NA focusing systems, the vectorial nature of light starts to play a non-negligible role and it may affect the focal spot. Input polarization, the direction-dependent Fresnel coefficients at the surfaces and the diffraction effect that dominates the propagation of the field in the focal zone must all be considered in order to make reasonable predictions about high-NA setups.

In VirtualLab, all these effects can be included for the investigation of your system, and the focal fields can be calculated very efficiently.
