Import of Zemax Optical Systems and Export for CAD

[September 12, 2018]
VirtualLab Fusion offers a user-friendly interface with Zemax, with which one can import complete optical systems from Zemax with full three-dimensional position information and glass material definitions. That enables an efficient and flexible workflow for optical designers who have access to both software packages – one optical system analyzed with both Zemax and VirtualLab. On the other side, optical systems and components in VirtualLab can be exported into various computer aided design (CAD) formats, such as IGES and STL, which makes it convenient for possible further fabrication processes.

Panel-Type Source and Its Use in Imaging System Analysis

[September 06, 2018]
Nowadays, panel-type display devices are widely used in different optical system, e.g., image projection systems. The panel-type source in VirtualLab can be used to model the light generated from such display devices conveniently, with direct access to parameters like pixel number and pixel pitch. With the help of the panel-type source, the performance of the projection lenses can be analyzed, by e.g. observing the spot grid distortion in the image plane, or by checking the angular/direction behavior of the system.

Scanning Source and Evaluation of F-Theta Scanning Lens

[August 29, 2018]
High-quality scanning systems are of importance for many optical applications, e.g., in laser beam welding, drilling and cutting. Such systems are typically constructed with F-Theta lenses. An F-Theta lens is supposed to focal the beam on the focal plane with a lateral displacement proportional to the scan angle. With the help of the scanning source in VirtualLab, the performance of an F-Theta lens can be analyzed by e.g. measuring the lateral shift and the size of the focal spot under different scan angle.

Customizable Parameter Run and Parameter Coupling

[August 15, 2018]
To evaluate the actual performance of optical systems, it often requires the inclusion of complex real-world parameters e.g. fabrication errors, misalignment, and even thermal/vibrational perturbances. The Parameter Run in VirtualLab Fusion allows the definitions of such parameters in a completely customizable manner according to the specific case. Moreover, optical parameters may mutually influence each other, so that they change, not independently, but in a coupled way. VirtualLab also provides a customizable Parameter Coupling for the definition of possible coupling relations.

Modeling of Femtosecond Pulses

[August 01, 2018]
Femtosecond pulses are drawing more and more attentions in modern optical applications, because of their ultrashort temporal duration and the corresponding ultrahigh power. The ultrashort temporal duration also leads to broad spectrums. Such spectral or temporal properties of femtosecond pulses must be properly handled together with their spatial behaviors for the modeling. VirtualLab Fusion provide such a physical-optics simulation platform that is capable of femtosecond pulse modeling.

Vectorial Effects in High-NA Focusing Systems

[July 30, 2018]
[July 30, 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.
