How to Use the Beam Envelopes Method for Wave Optics Simulations
In order to simulate optically large optical systems, you need to solve for Maxwell’s equations, which requires a fine mesh and a lot of computational energy. Enter the beam envelope method.
How to Model Optical Anisotropic Media with COMSOL Multiphysics®
Erasmus Bartholinus first observed the optical effect of birefringence in 1669. Today, you can observe this effect with a specialized modeling approach for optical anisotropic media.
Silicon Photonics: Designing and Prototyping Silicon Waveguides
John Tyndall tried to control the most visible form of energy, light, using 2 buckets and some water. Today, there is a more advanced device for this purpose: a silicon waveguide.
How to Model the Optical Properties of Rough Surfaces
We develop a computational model for calculating the optical properties of rough surfaces, such as incident light on a dielectric material with random variations in height and thickness.
