Physical-Optics Simulation for Ultrashort Pulses

VIPO Symposium 2021, 9 July 2021

With many modern applications requiring or benefitting from high-packaged energy delivered in a very short amount of time, ultrashort pulse sources acquire more and more interest. To focus on such kind of source, proper handling of the spatial and temporal distribution, as well as a possible coupling amongst the two domains is required. In this talk, we demonstrate simulation techniques based on fully vectorial physical optics to handle ultrashort pulse propagation through the air and various optical components such as lenses, gratings, and wedges and show in-depth effects like chirp compression or the pulse-front tilt for simultaneous spatial and temporal focusing setups.
