Paper Abstract

We present a user-friendly computational platform for numerical analysis and performance assessment of a wide range of optical systems for imaging and laser projection applications. The wave-optics-based software package, referred to as the Wave-Optics Joint Estimation Toolbox (WaveJET), exploits advantages of GPU/CUDA technologies and allows one to quickly and accurately simulate atmospheric turbulence effects on various systems using the combination of different computational techniques and algorithms for wavefront sensing and imaging. The WaveJET software also takes into account critical system engineering design constraints including system architecture, diffraction, turbulence propagation, adaptive optics control, and coherent/incoherent beam combining.
