Optical Setup Functions in VirtualLab Fusion
In this example, we select two commercially available lenses, with the same effective focal length, but different surface types. They are evaluated, for the task of coupling light into a single-mode fiber, in terms of coupling efficiency which is calculated by using the overlap integral.
The Thin Element Approximation (TEA) is a widely-used method in e.g. Fourier optics to calculate the diffraction efficiency of gratings.
Together with a Xenon lamp, a Michelson interferometer is built up and used to measure a specimen with smoothly varying front surface.
In many applications of laser resonators only one dominant mode is outcoupled. In certain resonator geometries however, multiple modes can overlay each other and therefore impact the quality of the outcoupled beam.
New applications in the area of augmented and mixed reality (AR & MR) have drawn increased attention to light-guide systems with grating regions for in- and outcoupling, and pupil-expansion purposes.
DOEs and diffusers are nowadays widely used in different optical applications. Such devices are often designed as single components under idealized illumination situations. But these conditions are not fulfilled in practice. VirtualLab Fusion enables their inclusion in systems and therefore the evaluation of overall performance.
In VirtualLab Fusion, chromatic effects of high-NA objective lens can be analyzed in a full vectorial manner. As an example, the performance of a patented objective lens is evaluated. As one of the important issues for near-to-eye display design, propagation of light through waveguide structure with tailored in- and outcoupling gratings is of concern. With the region and channel concepts in VirtualLab Fusion, the in- and outcoupling gratings can be configured flexibly.
