Simulating Lasers

Simulating Lasers in OpticStudio, September 28 2015

When Laser Engineers need confidence in their optical designs, they use OpticStudio to simulate beam propagation. From medical systems to materials processing, OpticStudio has the tools you need to ensure your system meets specification every time. Learn the ins and outs of simulating lasers in OpticStudio, including when ray-based models are appropriate, and when you might need to propagate a full complex-valued field with Physical Optics Propagation. This webinar will cover:
  • How to set up a Gaussian laser source
  • How to simulate diode lasers in OpticStudio
  • When (and when not) to use Physical Optics Propagation (POP)
  • Tips and tricks for POP


About the Presenter: 

Kristen Norton spent over 2 years working as a Lasers & Optics Engineer before joining Zemax as a Senior Optical Engineer in early 2014. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Physics from Willamette University in 2011, and MS in Applied Physics at the University of Oregon as a part of the Industrial Internship Master’s Program (Optics track). Known for her ability to tackle any problem, Kristen has quickly become recognized in the industry as an OpticStudio expert.
