Analysis and Design of Diffractive and Micro-Optical Systems

17 – 19 October 2018
Santa Clara, CA, USA
9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Attendees at the software course develop their skills in modeling and analysis of micro-structured and diffractive optical components with refractive, diffractive and hybrid surfaces. Customized surface profiles and refractive index distributions will also be explained. The course teaches the analysis of these components including diffraction and interference effects. The modeling and analysis of typical tolerances, e.g. of micro-structured elements, will be discussed along several examples. We present the optimization of diffractive beam splitters, diffusers and beam shapers by the Iterative Fourier Transform Algorithm (IFTA). The course will also cover the use of the Fourier Modal Method (FMM) to model and perform a rigorous analysis of both 2D and 3D grating structures with features in the wavelength range and with arbitrary surface and index modulations. Finally local and global parametric optimization algorithms of VirtualLab for the rigorous optimization of gratings will be introduced.

Short Overview:

  • Modeling of micro-optical components
  • Import and export
  • Analysis, design and tolerancing of diffractive and micro-optical systems
  • Modeling and analysis of homogenization systems
  • Design of diffractive and refractive beam splitters, diffusers and beam shapers
  • Rigorous analysis and optimization of gratings

Requirements: Elementary skills in working with VirtualLab are recommended, in particular regarding use of the light path diagram for the setup and analysis of laser systems.

In this course we teach in a compact way the principles of the design of diffractive optical elements (DOEs) and gratings, and you will learn to apply VirtualLab Fusion efficiently for the solution of your design tasks in these fields.

The course starts with an overview of so-called unified optical design, of ray- and field-tracing techniques, and the general usage of VirtualLab. Participants will learn about components, sources and detectors; and simulation engines of VirtualLab. The setup and the simulation of optical systems is demonstrated by some examples.

The course will also introduce you to the analysis and optimization of diffractive beam splitters, diffractive diffusers and diffractive beam shapers with VirtualLab. Furthermore, the rigorous analysis and optimization of 2D and 3D grating structures with arbitrary surface and refractive index modulations will be discussed.

Introduction to VirtualLab Programming

25 September, 2017
Jena, Germany

Requirements: Advanced knowledge about handling of VirtualLab Fusion. Basic knowledge in at least one programming language.

This advanced software training gives a detailed introduction into the object-oriented programming and customization features of VirtualLab Fusion. Participants will learn the programming of short code snippets for the generation of custom transmission functions, light sources, optical interfaces, detectors and components using the VirtualLab Programming Library. In addition, the programming of small modules for automatization of VirtualLab Fusion is demonstrated by various hands-on examples. Finally, the MATLAB interface as well as the batch-mode-operation feature of VirtualLab Fusion are discussed in detail. The goal of the course is that participants can program small modules and snippets for adaption of VirtualLab Fusion to their specific needs.

Deadline for registration to September courses is September 1, 2017.
