Product description

FRED for advanced Person

All participants should have attended the first FRED training and have basic knowledge of optical physics. The course starts with theoretical content and includes the illustration of many examples using the FRED software. We ask you to bring your notebook (with installation rights) to the training.

The special emphasis of this seminar is on the treatment of Gaussian rays. The FRED software stands out clearly with its own radiation model from other software tools.

The seminar language is English.

The registration deadline for the FRED seminar is four weeks before the first day of the seminar.

  • What does "optical physics" mean?

Mathematical description of optical wave fields

  • Maxwell equations
  • Poynting Vector and Radiation Intensity
  • Plane waves / spherical waves

Basics of radiometry

The characteristic of Gaussian rays

  • Spherical waves after Gauss
  • Wide field divergence and beam width
  • Focusing properties of Gaussian rays

Propagation of Gaussian rays in complex raytracing

  • The ABCD law for Gaussian propagation
  • Rules for complex raytracing
  • Accuracy of Complex Raytracing (with FRED)
  • Cliffs of Gaussian Rays (with FRED)

Electromagnetic waves as a superposition of Gaussian rays

  • Compute the diffraction in complex raytracing
  • Rules for the resolution in Gaussian beams
  • Simulation of classical interference (with FRED)
  • Simulation of the Fraunhofer diffraction (with FRED)
