Laser Simulation Software

ASLD laser simulation software has been designed and implemented using state-of-the-art programming techniques. The algorithms used for laser simulation have been specifically formulated for accurate modelling of physical effects, as well as fast execution. They have been developed through intensive research and published in numerous professional journals and conferences. 
ASLD performs simulations based on the latest mathematical algorithms for modeling laser devices. ASLD provides tailor-made answers to the development challenges of solid-state lasers and uses specifically developed numerical tools. These are selectively used for optimization of lasers and meeting very specific criteria and tolerances.
ASLD allows user to simulate following analyses:

  • Design and the simulation of multi-level solid-state laser resonators and amplifiers (with Nd:YAG, Yb:YAG, Er:YAG, Er:glass, or Tm,Ho:YAG, etc.)
  • Calculation of output power, beam quality, pulse- width, and repetition frequency
  • Stability analysis (polarization dependent)
  • Dynamic Multi-Mode Analysis (DMA) of high and low order laser modes
  • Rigorous calculation of mechanical strain, stress and birefringence
  • Resonators with multiple crystals
  • Active & Passive Q-switch lasers with saturable absorbers Cr:YAG
  • Pulsed lasers with SESAM
  • High power lasers, like thin disk (slab) laser with different shapes
  • BPM (Beam Propagation Method) for amplifiers
  • Polarization effects
  • Thermal lensing effects, wavefront distortion
  • Second harmonic generation SHG
  • Pumping design (pump spectrum, pumping geometry, pulsed pumping, etc.)
  • Super Gaussian Modes for analysis of high power lasers
  • Resonators with multiple crystals
  • High power lasers
  • Parameter analysis
  • Solid-state laser multipass laser amplification
  • Ray tracing for pump light configuration
  • Ultra-short and chirped pulse amplification
