DLIP Optical System Modelling
In the last few years there has been growing interest in utilizing Direct Laser Interference Patterning (DLIP) for surface structuring with high-power short pulse lasers. As a major supplier of high-power diffractive optical elements (DOEs) used in many DLIP systems, Holo/Or is now providing system integration support for customers in this field.
As a part of an unwavering commitment to customer support, Holo/Or has shared a Zemax OpticStudio design file, developed in-house, for DLIP optical system modelling. This tool allows a user to simulate nominal performance, as well as tolerances. It can easily be customized for any optical parameters, such as wavelength, beam size, splitting angles, number of orders, focal length, etc.
The image above shows how the real intensity results from the reference article vs the Holo/Or model of a similar system. (Left image – Intensity distribution in focal plane published in the article. Right image – Intensity result of simulation model.)
Holo/Or has created a tutorial to help professionals develop DLIP systems to better model their unique systems and explore technical issues, including integration of DOEs.
