Import of Microstructure Data via Bitmap and Material Data into VirtualLab Fusion

In optical modeling it is of necessity to be able to replicate the real world setup as accurately and in as much detail as required. This means that the detail level of the model has to be high enough to account for all relevant effects. The proper setting-up of a digital twin therefore necessitates the import of data and parameters of real elements and materials. This week, we focus on the import of the height profile of a microstructure and of material data into VirtualLab Fusion.

Import of Bitmap file containing Height Data of a Microstructure into VirtualLab Fusion

An optical component, which consists of a microstructure is imported into VirtualLab Fusion. For this purpose a bitmap file that contains the desired height data is used. A step-by-step workflow is presented, to illustrate this capability.

Import of Material Data into VirtualLab Fusion

In order to model optical systems accurately, it is necessary to be able to accurately consider material properties. Especially in the case of thin layers or more complex materials, it can be pertinent to e.g. measure the complex refractive index of the material in question and import the resulting data into VirtualLab Fusion. The workflow to import complex material data is shown in this example.
