Paper Abstract

The European Network of Excellence on Micro-Optics (NEMO) is a consortium of about 30 European institutes and companies which are working on micro-optics. The network is supported by the European Commission for a period of four years. One of its work packages is the Centre for Modelling and Design consisting of about 20 partners. In this work package a benchmark of the capabilities of commercial and internal software tools which are available among the partners will be made. The ten test systems which are used for the benchmarking range from seemingly simple things like calculating the intensity distribution in the focus of a microlens to complete systems like for example an optical interconnect system with microlenses, DOEs and a prism. The paper will present some of the benchmark systems. First results of the benchmarking itself cannot be presented in this proceeding because the benchmarking just ends at the end of August (after the deadline of this proceeding). But, hopefully first results can be presented during the talk.
