Programming a Detector for Diffractive Optics Merit Functions Calculation

VirtualLab Fusion provides maximum versatility for your optical simulations. Based on the full field information, those typically used merit functions in diffractive optics, like the window efficiency, can be calculated according to their definitions. In this example, we realize the standard diffractive optics merit functions which has been defined in VirtualLab, but by using a Programmable Detector for illustration. In a similar manner, one can define their own merit functions for specific applications with full flexibility.
