VirtualLab Fusion Technology and Applications: Introduction to VirtualLab Fusion

20 – 21 January 2020
Jena, Germany
9:00 – 17:00

Nowadays physical optics principles are of ever-growing importance for the analysis and design of advanced optical devices and systems. Come to our training course to learn the concepts of Fast Physical Optics on which VirtualLab Fusion is based. We show how you can benefit from VirtualLab Fusion in your daily work.


Learning outcomes:

  • Discover essential physical-optics effects and phenomena in modern optical systems and how to include them in your modeling and design.
  • Dive right into the software with hands-on exercises on typical applications (e.g., lens systems, laser optics, fiber coupling, interferometry, microscopy), accompanied by the corresponding workflows.
  • Build up your optical system and perform an analysis and design thereof with different modeling technologies and optimization tools in VirtualLab Fusion.

VirtualLab Fusion Technology and Applications: Gratings and Diffractive Optics

22 – 24 January 2020
Jena, Germany
9:00 – 17:00

VirtualLab Fusion Technology and Applications: Gratings and Diffractive Optics

22 – 24 January 2020
Jena, Germany
9:00 – 17:00

Gratings, diffractive lenses, diffractive optical elements and diffusers are increasingly gaining importance in modern optics for various purposes. Subwavelength structures including metalenses extend the potential of micro- and nanostructured flat optical components. Naturally, modeling and design of such components and their inclusion in optical systems require physical-optics techniques. We show how VirtualLab Fusion provides you with the techniques and tools you need.


Learning outcomes:

  • Overview of different applications of diffractive optics including: gratings for spectrum separation, lightguide coupling and polarization manipulation, diffractive lenses and metalenses in imaging, diffractive point-cloud generation, diffusers for light shaping, and more.
  • Understand the theory and usage of modeling techniques for micro- and nanostructures in Virtuallab Fusion: diffraction integrals and their fast implementation, the Thin Element Approximation (TEA), the Local Plane Interface Approximation (LPIA), split-step techniques, and the rigorous Fourier Modal Method (FMM), also known as RCWA.
  • Hands-on workflows on the modeling and design in VirtualLab Fusion of various types of gratings and diffractive optical elements (DOEs) for different applications. Analysis of complete optical systems which include gratings and diffractive optics elements.

VirtualLab Fusion Technology and Applications: Gratings and Diffractive Lenses

12 – 13 February 2020
Premiere Workspaces, San Jose, CA, USA
9:00 – 17:00

Gratings, metagratings, and diffractive lenses are increasingly gaining importance in modern optics for various purposes. Subwavelength structures including metasurface building blocks extend the potential of microand nanostructured flat optical components. Naturally, modeling and design of such components and their inclusion in optical systems require physical-optics techniques. We show how VirtualLab Fusion provides you with the technologies and tools you need.


Learning outcomes:

  • Gain an overview of different applications of diffractive optics including: gratings for spectrum separation, lightguide coupling and polarization manipulation, metagratings with high efficiency, diffractive lenses in imaging, point-cloud generation, and more.
  • Understand the theory and usage of modeling technologies for gratings and diffractive lenses: the Thin Element Approximation (TEA), the Local Plane Interface Approximation (LPIA), and the rigorous Fourier Modal Method (FMM), also known as RCWA.
  • Practice hands-on with workflows in VirtualLab Fusion for the modeling and design of various types of gratings, including blazed, binary (also slanted), holographic, and metagratings for different applications. Analysis of whole optical systems which include gratings and diffractive lenses.
