Investigation of Diffraction in Interferometer Caused by Sharp Relief – Analysis by Using Distributed Computing

Interferometric optical setups can be used for the detailed investigation of samples. Within this use case we analyze the diffraction effects caused by a sample with a sharp relief in a Michelson interferometer. In order to model the while light source properly, the analysis comprises a set of 500 different wavelengths. By consecutive simulation steps, the overall simulation time would be in the range of one hour. By using the distributed computing in VirtualLab Fusion with a network of 24 clients on 6 multicore processor PCs, the simulation time can be reduced to less than 4 minutes.
