Modeling laser beam propagation in OpticStudio
Learn the key steps in modeling laser beam propagation in OpticStudio. Discover what tools are available, how to set up, analyze laser beam propagation, and optimize for the smallest beam size in a simple singlet lens system in OpticStudio sequential
This section starts with an overview of Gaussian beam theory and the terms and conventions used by OpticStudio. It sets up an example to show how to optimize a laser beam focusing system using geometric ray-based approach.
