    »Simulation methods for optical systems«


    There is a long tradition for simulating optical systems. Due to the complexity and the lack of powerful computers in the past, many simplifications are proposed over the time. The most common approach is a ray based geometrical approach to model optical systems. In recent times, many new aspects are coming up and the computational opportunities are growing. More physical based imaging modes are therefore used and the modelling of real fabricated components becomes more and more popular to estimate the influences of imperfections. The impact of digital signal processing for extracting the relevant information needs for a more comprehensive consideration of the sensors characteristics and algorithms. Thus a holistic approach is developed to take all these effects into account with the final goal of a virtual prototyping of a complex system.

    In the talk a short historical review and the development of the methods is illustrated. Finally the state of the art today as well as an outlook on future possibilities is sketched. To be more concrete in particular the progress in simulating physical effects for coherent light in the models is considered in more detail.
