First, students will construct an optical model. The model will consist of a lens system, detectors, lighting, a casing and a surface (that will later be lighted).
Students will have to determine the tolerance limits for the alignment of the sensors, the lenses, the microscope slide and the illumination when constructing the model.
After creating the model, the methods and concepts of ray tracing simulations will be presented.
-Application of the ray tracing simulation to the model created by the students
-Evaluation and discussion of the results regarding radiation density, lost rays, and detected rays
-Optimization of the model
-Comparison of the real system with the simulation results
After successfully completing the course, students will have developed a "feeling" for the feasibility of a model and the dimensioning of important optical parameters. They will be able to distinguish between superfluous and necessary changes for the optimization and implementation of a simulation model.
- Introduction to the construction of simple optical components, lenses, objectives, lighting, detectors and casings
- Modelling and optimization of a given optical system consisting of a light source, lenses, various objects (mirrors, components, etc.) and a photo sensor
- Introduction to the ray tracing simulation: Definition of light sources, determination of the number of source beams and optimization of simulation parameters
-Comparison of the real system with the simulated system
- Evaluation of the simulation results based on photometric parameters (optical flux density, radiant power, solid angle, etc.)
- Optimization of the simulated model based on the evaluation and analysis of detected and lost rays.
- Introduction to methods for describing surfaces
- Important practical tips for simplifying modeling
Lecture in PC room, exercises and application of the simulation directly on the PC.
