PhysicalOptics

A package for simulation of physical optics. Physical optics is more general than ray optics but not as general as full electrodynamics.

As this package is at an early stage of development, we would be excited to welcome any new contributers!

Documentation Build Status Code Coverage

Installation

Currently not registered and under development. But the main branch can be installed with:

julia> ] add https://github.com/JuliaPhysics/PhysicalOptics.jl

Features

Implemented

  • Fast convolutions adapted to the needs of Physical Optics. Methods like conv_psf and conv_otf are wrappers for the more general conv and conv_v_ft.
  • Light propagation with Fresnel and Rayleigh-Sommerfeld (propagate)
  • 2D jinc PSF
  • some conversion methods
  • Light propagation with Fresnel
  • Optical elements like lenses, apertures
  • some optical conversions
  • micro lenses
  • Light propagation with Fraunhofer
  • Focused and defocused PSFs (3D) with Debye integral.

Wanted

  • Register adjoints of convolution via ChainRulesCore
  • more tests
  • cleaning of method arguments
  • Documentation
