Analysis of Imaging Systems: Wavefront Error & Effect of Apertures

[September 25, 2018]
Imaging systems can be found in various optical applications and they may appear in different configurations. Such systems can be easily setup in VirtualLab Fusion and their performance can be analyzed by using e.g. the wavefront error detector. Especially, the apertures in system is known to have an influence on the imaging quality. VirtualLab can handle the aperture effects properly and take them into consideration for the PSF/MTF calculation. As an example, such effects are demonstrated with a human eye model.

Modeling of Graded-Index Media

[September 18, 2018]
In optics, several effects, like the air turbulence or thermal effects in laser, may cause modulations in the refractive index, and lead to the so-called graded-index (GRIN) media. Such media are found useful in applications e.g. flat lens, reducing aberrations, and fibers. The modeling of light propagation through GRIN media is therefore important for practical optical simulation and design. In VirtualLab Fusion, an efficient modeling technology has been implemented, which is suitable in the cases of e.g. GRIN lens and GRIN fiber modeling.

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.
