Hello Optiwave,

I was wondering if there was a way to model a lens in an FSO simulation. I have not been able to find a component that fits the description of a lens. I thought about using an optical amplifier or just increasing the receiver aperture diameter in the FSO Channel component, but I do not believe that would simulate all of the properties of a lens. I have not done too much research on what I need to try to model for a lens, but I figured I would ask you before I tried to model a lens myself, just in case there is already a model out there.

If you know of any ways of modeling a lens in an FSO simulation, I would greatly appreciate if you would be able to share it with me so I can model the system that I am working on.

Thank you,

    Dear Jacob,
    The “Free Space Optics” directory in OptiSystem 16.1 has one component called “LOS Channel”. It is used to be called “Diffuse Channel” in older versions. The LOS channel is the proper name. This component has a lens model build in it, where users can enter “Optical concentrator factor” to setup the gain of the lens and set up the lens index of refractive. You could check the component’s datasheet for more information. You can access it by clicking the help button in the component properties window.
    Regard,
    Ahmad
