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:

Overview: VirtualLab Fusion Technology
09:00 – 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.
  • Physical optics analysis of coupling efficiency and investigation of the influence of tolerances on the efficiency.
