An optical FFT code to simulate Fabry Perot cavities with arbitrary mirror profiles

| Watch this File

File Information
Description

OSCAR is an optical FFT code used to calculate the steady state optical field circulating in Fabry Perot cavities. The code can integrate non-sperical mirrors and any arbitrary input fields. Recent applications for OSCAR have been: calculation of thermal lensing effect and calculation of diffraction loss and cavity eigen modes for mesa beams. One great advantage of OSCAR is the simplicity and flexibility of the code, everyone with only minimal knowledge of Matlab can easily modified OSCAR code to suit specific purposes.

MATLAB release MATLAB 7.10 (R2010a)
Other requirements If beam fitting functions are needed, the Optimization Toolbox is required.

Cavity with a length of few centimeter must work (with a suitable grid side). Send me by email an example for your file so I can fix it.

18 Aug 2013 seongwoo oh

does anybody know why the simulation doesnt work if you make the cavity length small in the range of a few centimeters?

the code doesnt crash but it doesnt plot anything..

I have been using this code since a long time, and I really like it. It is easy to use, and most important, easy to customize for many different purposes.

The documentation is clear and well written, and it's the very first paper to be read to easily understand the basic principles of FFT optical codes.

Moreover, Oscar is constantly updated, and the author is always available and responds quickly to any questions.

Very good job!

Really nice job.
Documentation is easy to understand and to follow.

Thanks to the author!

This is a first class job.
I have used Oscar as a foundation for my own code for simulating cavities. It is really very easy to understand the code and there is also a very well written user manual.

Updates
22 Jul 2008

A little mistake found in the manual

30 Jul 2008

Added a new example

23 Apr 2009

Add an example about how to simulate a 3 mirrors ring cavity (also called a mode cleaner).

12 Jan 2010

Example to reduce the computational time of OSCAR, better memory allocation of matrices and correct a sign error

03 Feb 2012

The code has been fully rewritten (with Oriented Object Programming) to be faster and more user friendly.
Higher order optical modes are supported.

12 Jul 2012

Can simulate linear cavity with arbitraty number of mirrors. New syntax to define laser beam and Interfaces. Minor bug correction.

25 Jan 2013

Can use a more reliable to propagate the beam and add a new routine to calculate cavity eigen modes.

19 Feb 2013

Bug fixes

09 Sep 2013

An accelerated convergence scheme has been implemented as well as the possibility to use strong focusing telescope.
Additional minor improvement to existing functions

22 Jan 2014

It includes now the function to read the .dat from the ZYGO interferometer.
New functions (plot PSD, expand into higher order modes) and the usual bug fixes
