Defining a Mapped Dielectric Distribution of a Material (Wave Optics)

Application ID: 14689

In this example, the properties of an engineeredmaterial are modeled by a spatially varying dielectric distribution. Specifically, a convex lens shape is defined via a known deformation of a rectangular domain. The dielectric distribution is defined on the undeformed, original rectangular domain and is mapped onto the deformed shape of the lens. Although the lens shape defined here is convex, the dielectric distribution causes the incident beam to diverge.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
