Analysis and Design of Diffractive and Micro-Optical Systems | Mountain View 16 – 18 October 2017

16 – 18 October, 2017
Mountain View, CA, USA

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.

Analysis and Design of Diffractive and Micro-Optical Systems | Jena 20 – 22 September 2017

20 – 22 September, 2017
Jena, Germany

Requirements: Elementary skills in using VirtualLab and in particular in using the light path diagram for the setup and analysis of laser systems are recommended.

The software course will give an introduction into the modeling and analysis of micro-structured and diffractive optical components with free-form refractive, diffractive and hybrid surfaces. It will show the analysis of diffractive optical elements, diffractive lenses, hybrid lenses and lens arrays including diffraction and interference effects. This includes especially the modeling of elements with customized surface profiles and refractive index distributions. The modeling and analysis of typical tolerances of micro-structured elements will be discussed on several examples. The course will introduce the optimization of diffractive beam splitters, diffractive diffusers and diffractive beam shapers by the Iterative Fourier Transform Algorithm (IFTA). Furthermore, micro-structured elements with features in the range of the wavelength require a rigorous analysis. During the course the modeling and rigorous analysis of 2D and 3D grating structures with arbitrary surface and refractive index modulations by the Fourier Modal Method (FMM) will be practiced. At the end, local and global parametric optimization algorithms of VirtualLab for the rigorous optimization of gratings will be introduced.
