FREE VirtualLab Fusion Seminar - Beyond Ray Tracing: Innovative Optical Design with Fast Physical Optics

Modern optical technology has so branched out from traditionally understood lens systems that ray optics often falls short when it comes to simulating and designing cutting-edge optical systems with acceptable accuracy. A software package that yields fast physical optics simulation results alongside ray tracing then becomes, not a choice, but a necessity. This is precisely what VirtualLab Fusion offers: come to our free seminar to discover the fast physical optics concept, how to benefit from it through our user-friendly GUI, and an overview of what it can provide in a wide-ranging set of applications!

Here you can find the flyer. This workshop is free of charge for you.
