Optical  System  Simulation  Software


Simulated patterns of grooves, preformat pits, and recorded marks on various optical disk surfaces

With DIFFRACT you can simulate the various optical disk systems that are either in use today, or are being developed for the future. Choose from a menu of lasers, beam-shaping optics, polarization-sensitive elements, collimator and objective lenses, optical disks, focusing and tracking elements, and photodetectors to simulate a variety of conventional and novel systems.

From left to right: read-only disk (CD, CD-ROM, DVD), writable disk (CD-R, Ablative, Phase-change), magneto-optical disk (preformat pits, regular marks), magneto-optical disk (preformat pits, chevron marks).
