Online Training

Grating Modeling and Design

Gratings are the most widely applied diffractive optics elements in various optical systems. VirtualLab Fusion software provides the Fourier modal method (FMM a.k.a. RCWA) and the thin element approximation (TEA) for grating simulations. This interactive online training shows how to use the corresponding technologies from VirtualLab Fusion to solve practical grating modeling and design tasks for modern optics applications.


Learning Outcomes

In our Online Training you will learn how to construct the grating geometry and materials. Furthermore, we will present the basic theory of the modeling technologies and their differences and we will show you the how to use the software tools for grating analysis and design. We will practice hands-on with selected rigorous modeling examples, including blazed grating, rectangular grating, slanted grating, holographic volume grating, and metagrating. The design workflow will be discussed along examples, like moth-eye anti-reflection grating, waveguide coupling grating, polarization-insensitive pulse compressor grating, and beam-splitting metagrating.
