Modeling of Microlens Arrays and Diffraction at Apertures

[Friday, 06. July 2018]


Microlens arrays can be found in different applications, such as imaging, wavefront sensing, and so on.

With the physical-optics simulation technique in VirtualLab, the working principle of the microlens array, e.g. in the case of wavefront sensing, can be clearly demonstrated, and the performance of such systems can be evaluated efficiently. It is also worth mentioning that the diffraction effect from the edge of the individual microlenses can be taken into consideration in the simulation.
