Programming Custom Detectors

In some of our previous newsletters we already spoke of the potential for customization via programming, which is characteristic of the optical modeling and design software VirtualLab Fusion. In the current newsletter we present another programmable element: detectors. Full accessibility to the vectorial electromagnetic field, paired with the customizability, further increases versatility, facilitating the implementation of any detector function. Find below two documents that illustrate how to work with the Programmable Detector in VirtualLab Fusion: a detailed tutorial and an additional example in a more condensed format.
