Multi-Path Optical Systems and VirtualLab Fusion Technologies

Interferometry techniques are widely used in many fields, such as astronomy, metrology, and quantum mechanics. In an interferometer, the incoming light is split into two (or even more) beams. The split beams will travel along different paths which eventually overlap, their superposition generating an interference pattern which can be used for further analysis. Now, with the non-sequential extension, such multi-path optical systems can be easily set up and modeled in a more convenient way in VirtualLab.

Mach-Zehnder Interferometer

A Mach-Zehnder interferometer is constructed and simulated in VirtualLab. We perform an analysis of how the tilt and shift of an optical element affects the interference pattern.
