> OPTICAL SIMULATION
Optical simulation allows to precisely analyze and optimize the influence of different parameters and tolerances of optics and optomechanics even before the manufacturing and implementation of optical systems. For classical projecting and beam shaping lenses with dimensions of several millimeters, longstanding programs are applied. Wave optical effects, such as diffraction and interference in design have to be taken into account when structures become smaller. These effects can be systematically taken advantage of, in order to for example realize diffractive beam shaping elements.
The embedding of real light sources and component surfaces constitutes an important aspect in optical simulation. For the measurement of light sources various measurement devices, such as wave front sensors and cameras for beam analysis, are available at the blz. Furthermore, there is the possibility of implementing and analyzing real components as well as tactile or optically measured “Obertopographien” with the help of CAD-interfaces.
For your problem the right solution:
- Raytracing with ZEMAX for anastigmatic and non-anastigmatic lenses
- Wave optical simulation with Virtual Lab
- Simulation of nanostructures
- Processing and import of CAD-data (step, stl, igs, dxf, etc.)
- Measurement and implementation of real beam characteristics (Laser, LED, etc.)
- Optimization and tolerance analysis
