Holiday Season Newsletter

To spread some holiday spirit this year, we have decided to send four special newsletters showcasing insights, tips and tricks and more.

In our third Seasonal Newsletter we selected the most-read use cases from 2020.

Our use case highlighting LiDAR technology has especially stirred up interest this year. LiDAR technology has found its way into applications, not only in a professional and industrial setting, but also in consumer products. As an example, the flash LiDAR has proven useful in smart devices because of its capability for fast and accurate 3D distance detection and measurement.

Additionally, also our use case showing the design and modeling of intraocular lenses seemed to be a highlight for our readers.

Demonstrating the Working Principle of Flash LiDAR

In this example, we demonstrate the working principle of a typical flash LiDAR, which is composed of an array of sources, a collimation lens system, and a diffractive grating acting as a beam splitter. The analysis is done in both the spatial and the spatial frequency domains.

Design and Analysis of Intraocular Diffractive Lens

Multifocal intraocular lens implantation is now widely applied for the treatment of cataracts. As one of its advantages, a diffractive intraocular lens provides good far and near vision for the patients. We show how to import an intraocular diffractive lens design from Zemax OpticStudio® into VirtualLab Fusion, model it with the actual binary structure, and optimize the structure height for better performance.
