Paper Abstract

Modeling and simulation platform of optical teaching experiments SeeLight was proposed. Its modeling range covers a variety of simple or complex optical systems including geometrical optics, wave optics, adaptive optics, information optics, polarization analysis, and so on. It has seven categories of models and more than 50 simulation application examples, so that many optical teaching experiments can be done on this platform. The platform is based on the component-based software architecture. And the operating efficiency is greatly improved based on high-performance computing framework. And it’s not only a stand-alone version, but also web version, which provides convenience for the user to build optical simulation systems. So that the complex optical experiment can be easily implemented on the platform, and the parameters of the experimental system can be adjusted flexibly, which greatly reduce the experimental cost and improve the efficiency of the experimental analysis. And in the process of simulation, not only the results of all optical components which have different spatial locations can be observed, but also users can observe the results over time. And the high-performance computing framework greatly improves the efficiency of the platform. Multiple optical simulation systems of comparative experiments can be simultaneously simulated. The functional structure, typical features and key simulation difficulties of this platform were discussed in detail. Finally, several simulation examples were given.
