DECAD both allows synthesis of diffracting phase functions and accurate simulation of their performances. The simulation engine relies on various selectable propagators (Angular Spectrum, Rayleigh-Sommerfeld, Kirchhoff,... ) that are used by the designer for in-depth analysis of the light diffracted by the DOE aperture.”

14 Available DOE design CAD DiffacMODA module of Optical Simulation Package,Rsoft Passive Device SuiteDiffractMOD™ is a general design and simulation tool for diffractive optical structures such as diffractive optical elements, subwavelength periodic structures, and photonic bandgap crystals. It is based on the Rigorous Coupled Wave Analysis (RCWA) technique which has been implemented using advanced algorithms including fast Fourier factorization and generalized transmission line formulation.Already a market leader, the tool has extensive applications in a broad range of areas including semiconductor manufacturing and wave optics.
16 Available DOE design CAD OptisLSP lab from the University of Strasbourg, France,Gerchberg-Saxton algorithm.Bitmap Image input/outputdemo evaluation version or quotation :“There are a lot of DOE simulation tools, but every feature developed in DOEs simulation tool as been though with tolerancing issues in mind. As a consequence, the final purpose of DOEs simulation tool is to allow every even unskilled user to see the evolution of the reconstructed image quality when changing source or DOE parameters.”
17 Available DOE design CAD OptisStep 1 : just define you laser beamStep 2 : define your target with a BMP editor softwareStep 3 : choose DOE parameters you want to build : sampling, number of phase level, nearfield or far field optimizationStep 4 : just press « Start » to see the evolution of your result during the optimization. It willautomatically stop when finishedStep 5 : here is your result : you can see quality, uniformity of the generated DOE, and youobtain a file that represents it: each pixel value (gray level) corresponds to a phase level.This result can be exported as a bitmap or a formatted text file for industrial manufacturing.
