Focusing Lens

Application ID: 57621

Optical lenses of millimeter size cannot easily be analyzed with the Electromagnetic Waves, Frequency Domain interface on standard workstations due to the large number of finite element mesh elements required.

This model explains how the Electromagnetic Waves, Beam Envelopes interface can be used to analyze a plano-convex lens with a 1 mm focal length. The results are compared with the Fresnel diffraction formula. The two results agree very well.
