Continuous Improvements of LightTrans VirtualLab™
LightTrans VirtualLab™ provides extended features, improved usability and increased performance

VirtualLab is being extended and improved continuously. Several releases per year ensure that the user of VirtualLab profit from the development at once. Increased user friendliness and comfort for users, improved numerical performance, solutions to upcoming requirements in optical modeling an adaptations to modern computer architectures are some of the advantages of using the update servic offered by LightTrans for VirtualLab toolboxes.

Benefits achieved by new and improved features of version 5.10:

□ Experimental series by Parameter Run: the revised Parameter Run environment is more comfor-table and user friendly for the definition of experimental series for tolerancing and optimization.
The performance has been improved considerably by an intelligent caching of results.
□ Simulation of partially coherent light: VirtualLab provides justified methods for the modeling of spatially and temporally partially coherent light based on a mode model. The processing of modes has been drastically accelerated by highly efficient methods and parallelization.
□Flexible positioning of components: the position and orientation of optical components can be defined freely allowing tilts and offsets also for tolerancing analysis and optimization.
□ Efficient tracing engines: The tracing engines including field tracing and ray tracing have been extended further. The rigorous simulation of gratings as part of systems is one example.
□ Light shaping and pattern generation: New design methods for the shaping of monochromatic and white light LEDs have been added. New export formats including STL and TIFF are available.
□ Comfortable visualization of data: VirtualLab provides several new options for the display, manipulation and evaluation of data and data series including the generation of movies.
□ User defined modeling: Based on the new programming interface LightTrans.Programming users can add own modeling techniques. Thus field tracing becomes even more flexible.
□ Spatiotemporal modeling of fs and as pulses: Several models for extending, shortening, focusing and shaping fs and as pulses have been added in version 5.8-5.10. X-ray dispersion relations are included enabling attosecond pulse modeling.
□ Protection of knowledge by a Black Box component: a new Black Box component allows vendors of optics to provide encrypted components for VirtualLab simulations to customers.
□ Getting insight to the modeling: field tracing is a highly flexibly method for interdisciplinary modeling tasks. VirtualLab provides a detailed logging about the individual algorithmic steps.
