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.
