New Technologies in VirtualLab Fusion

The new version 2021.1 provides our users with solutions for more applications. Also we come with a new workflow which enables a seamless transition from ray to full
physical-optics modeling. This way we simplify the usage of the amazing modeling features in VirtualLab Fusion.

NEW VIRTUALLAB FUSION VERSION 2021.1

Solution Driven Applications

  • A new Microlens Array (MLA) Component enables accurate and fast modeling of the ever-increasing number of applications of MLA.

  • Any type of crystals can be included in system modeling by the new Crystal Plate Component.

  • Anisotropic layers can be added to all surfaces to exploit the extra freedom of polarization control and multiplexing in optical systems.

  • We provide a Fiber Mode Calculator to analyze and investigate LP Bessel and LP Laguerre modes for step index and parabolic index fibers.

  • LP modes are also used in the new Multimode Fiber Coupling Efficiency Detector, which evaluates the overlap integral of the incident beam with the LP modes. 

  • The new LP Mode Source allows the propagation of LP modes through any optical system.

  • With the new Multiple Source Component, we make the first step to significantly extend the source modeling in VirtualLab Fusion by enabling the use of different and shifted sources.

  • In version 2021.1 we come with a new workflow which enables a seamless transition from ray to full physical-optics modeling. This way we simplify the usage of the amazing modeling features in VirtualLab Fusion.  

Release Notes

The release notes of the newest version of VirtualLab Fusion – Version 2021.1

Investigation of Aberration Effects on LP Fiber Modes in the Focal Region

In this use case, we use a specified step-index or graded-index fiber as source to generate a couple of propagation modes, and evaluate the aberration effects after propagation through an optical system.
