VirtualLab Fusion Technology and Applications: Interferometry, Microscopy and Fiber Coupling | Vienna, Austria 19 February 2019

19 February 2019
Vienna, Austria
BioCenter 5, University of Vienna


Modern optical technology has so branched out from traditionally understood lens systems that ray optics often falls short when it comes to simulating and designing cutting-edge optical systems while providing all optical quantities and measures of concern with acceptable accuracy. A software package that yields fast physical optics simulation results alongside ray tracing then becomes, not a choice, but a necessity. Discover the Fast Physical Optics concept with VirtualLab Fusion by means of seminar modules on technology and different applications. Join a specific module that you are interested in or stay for the lot, according to your preferences.

Seminar Schedule:

9:00 – 10:00

  • Understanding the limitations of ray optics modeling for innovative optical systems and the necessity of physical optics in typical cases of modern optics.
  • Discovering how field tracing technology overcomes common challenges of numerical complexity in physical optics computations.

Application I: Interferometry
10:00 – 10:45

  • Configuring various interferometric setups in VirtualLab Fusion, including Mach-Zehnder and Michelson interferometers.
  • Usage of non-sequential field tracing to simulate interference patterns including coherence and polarization.

Application II: Microscopy
11:00 – 11:45

  • Setting up different types of microscopes in VirtualLab Fusion including different source models.
  • Physical optics modeling of vectorial PSF, MTF and image simulations for microstructured samples.

Application III: Fiber Coupling
12:00 – 12:45

  • Design of lens systems for high-NA fiber coupling by parametric optimization.

SPIE Industry Workshop: Modeling and Design of Diffractive and Meta-lenses with VirtualLab Fusion | San Francisco 06 February 2019

06 February 2019
San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
Room 12 (South Exhibit Level), Moscone Center

SPIE Industry Workshop: Modeling and Design of Diffractive and Meta-lenses with VirtualLab Fusion | San Francisco 06 February 2019

06 February 2019
San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
Room 12 (South Exhibit Level), Moscone Center

This workshop is held in cooperation with ZEMAX/OpticStudio®.

Learning Outcomes

  • Import of lens system with binary surface from OpticStudio® into VirtualLab Fusion.
  • Transfer from binary surface (wavefront function) into a real diffractive lens or meta lens structure.
  • Design of meta and diffractive lenses by functional design approach in VirtualLab Fusion and its application to the example of a holographic projection system for AR/MR.
  • Fast physical optics modeling of system with diffractive and meta lenses including all electromagnetic effects.
  • Export of fabrication data for lenses.


Abstract
The growing importance of diffractive and meta-lenses in modern optical systems makes it vital to investigate and understand their capabilities. Both defined as thin structured layers etched or deposited on a surface, the difference between them lies in the scale of the structures: sub-wavelength range in the case of meta-lenses, wavelength range for diffractive. The underlying surface can be either plane or curved, with the latter case presenting particular challenges in fabrication, when it is at all feasible to manufacture. The effect sought with the inclusion of such components in an optical system is to produce a change in the incident wavefront; additional electromagnetic phenomena, often detrimental to the overall performance of the element, can and do occur, and must, therefore, be considered.

That is precisely one of the highlights of this workshop: we will show you how to include diffractive and meta-lenses in optical lens systems and how to perform a full fast physical optics simulation of the overall system, which accounts for all resulting effects, including higher diffraction orders (e.g. for multiple foci in intra-ocular lenses). The preliminary design of the diffractive and meta-lens elements may be based on an optimization of the wavefront transformation (binary surface) in OpticStudio®, with the resulting system subsequently imported into VirtualLab Fusion. We will then demonstrate how to design the lens structure of the corresponding diffractive (surface or volume) or meta-lens (nano-fin type). Another route we will illustrate is via the so-called functional design approach, which directly provides the lens structure for a given requested lens functionality. Once the diffractive or meta-lens has been designed (following one of the paths outlined above) the whole system can be analyzed with Fast Physical Optics to gauge its overall performance. The lens structure can eventually be exported as fabrication data for lithography or other manufacturing processes.
