Clip 1: PreDesigner: Gaussian beam calculator...

We discuss the Gaussian beam mode in PreDesigner:

  • how to access the gaussian beam mode
  • key parameters including beam in object or image space
  • beam profile plot and data table
  • sub plots of s/f v s’/f’ - giving insight into the beam properties
  • further options including fixed detector distance, beam propagation factor, depth of focus and suggested Qioptiq components
