1 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Software-supported Development of Optical Components 2007 AutoOptics Short Course at Harz University Dipl.-Ing. Matthias Haupt IuK-Center Wernigerode

2 Slide 2 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Overview Advantages of computer aided optic design An example of optic design: A Demultiplexer for WDM over POF From the basic idea to the design Analysis function given by the optic design program Optimization of the optic design Another attempt for a demultiplexer

3 Slide 3 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Advantages of Computer aided Optic Design An inexpensive way to design optical components Time saving Improvements can be realized fast Performance of optical components can be proved and compared with other setups Easy optimization of material

4 Slide 4 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt OpTaliX Features of OpTaliX Sequential and non- sequential ray tracing Full geometrical and diffraction analysis User-defined graphics  Same functionality as “high-end” products (ZEMAX / OSLO)

5 Slide 5 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt The applications for POF have high demand on bandwidth! Standard optical transmission system: One wavelength carries the information  Limitation in bandwidth  Problem! New technology: VIS-WDM over POF Multiple wavelengths carry information  A multiple of bandwidth is possible  Multiplexer and Demultiplexer are needed Motivation for VIS-WDM over POF

6 Slide 6 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Patented basic concept Principle setup of the VIS- WDM demultiplexer (unscaled)

7 Slide 7 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Patented basic concept: Lens Function: to focus light onto detection layer To minimize spherical aberrations  2 plano convex lenses lens “best form”simple biconvex lens distribution of refraction power in two lenses aspheric, almost plano convex lens

8 Slide 8 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Patented basic concept: Prism Prism separates monochromatic parts of light Separation of colors by high dispersive materials (low Abbe Number V) n D (λ)= 598.2nm n F (λ)= 486.1nm n C (λ)= 656.3nm

9 Slide 9 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Aberrations of Lenses and Mirrors (I) 2 aspheric Lenses to show spherical and chromatic aberrations

10 Slide 10 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Aberrations of Lenses and Mirrors (II) Spherical and Chromatic Aberrations lead to a large Spot Size

11 Slide 11 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt First Results (I)

12 Slide 12 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt First Results (II) Spot diagram: collects the transverse aberrations in the image plane Spherical and chromatic aberrations avoid better results

13 Slide 13 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Aberrations of Lenses and Mirrors (III) 2 off-axis parabolic mirrors

14 Slide 14 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Aberrations of Lenses and Mirrors (IV) A perfect point to point projection without any aberrations

15 Slide 15 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Aberrations of Lenses and Mirrors (V) Second off- axis source (green rays)

16 Slide 16 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Aberrations of Lenses and Mirrors (VI) Large spot size of off-axis source  Tolerancing is more difficult with mirrors

17 Slide 17 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Improved Results (I)

18 Slide 18 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Improved Results (II) Low aberrations  all colors can be detected Gap between colors is large enough for photodiodes Cross-talk lower than 30dB

19 Slide 19 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Another Attempt (I) Focusing done by an aspherical mirror Separating done by a grating Setup much smaller

20 Slide 20 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Another Attempt (II) Every color can be separated with gap >2mm Lower transitions of materials with different refractive indexes  higher intensity

21 Slide 21 Software-supported Development of Optical Components Matthias Haupt Conclusion Computer aided optic design is a fast and cheap method to design optical components OpTaliX allows to evaluate the optical design and to optimize the results Designs can be compared with each other easily
