Construction and Modelling of Graded-Index Media

[Monday, 11. June 2018]


Graded-index, or GRIN, media are employed in optics to construct, among other components, lenses and multimode fibers. In VirtualLab you can easily choose to include GRIN media as part of your optical system, as it includes a fast and accurate modeling technique accompanied by a user-friendly interface that makes setting up the GRIN component a really easy task.
