Cross-platform Optical Modeling and Design with MATLAB & Python
The modeling and design of modern optical systems, with their increased complexity, can benefit from the combination of multiple software tools. Especially for optimization and data processing a single software package often cannot provide all the necessary functionalities in all fields of interest. The batch mode of VirtualLab Fusion, when used alongside other software tools, enables precisely this type of cross-platform simulations. As examples, we demonstrate how to use Python and MATLAB to access the field solvers from VirtualLab Fusion, and to perform analysis and optimization tasks on that basis.
Cross-Platform Simulation with VirtualLab Fusion and Python®
We demonstrate how to use Python to access the field solvers in VirtualLab Fusion and use them together with Python functions for further analysis.
Newsletter/News cross platform, cross-plattform, MATLAB, Phyton The physical optics software VirtualLab Fusion is constructed as a platform to combine different in-built and customized field solvers to enable fast physical-optics simulation and design with ray tracing naturally embedded. This multi-solver concept is complemented by the possibility to use a cross-platform approach, where VirtualLab Fusion is accessed externally.
