Uses And Benefits Of Laser Models

Laser modeling is often done using software that can perform the required calculations and display or save the results. The software also helps build models, organize data, and provide useful visualizations.

Laser simulation software affects a variety of important performance parameters. In many cases, it can be vital to obtain a decent understanding of how various effects interact.

Three-dimensional problems often occur in optics; examples are beam propagation and temperature profiles. Finite-element algorithms and Fourier methods are often employed in such situations, but there are also techniques to reduce the effective dimensionality of a model so as to simplify the solution greatly without losing important aspects. 

The numerical core, doing the actual calculations, the quality of the user interface is essential. There are different types of user interfaces, which can be more or less appropriate under different circumstances:

Some software programs offer forms to fill in the required data and may present the results in the same form, in tables, or in graphical form. Input forms make it easy to get started, at least if they are accompanied by clear descriptions, consistency checks, and the like. 

Other software is controlled with script files, containing commands to start certain actions. Powerful script-controlled software also allows the use of mathematical expressions instead of numbers only, so that the user can use the most appropriate parametrization.
