Multilayer thin films are used in a wide variety of applications, including anti-reflection coatings, filters, OLEDs, and VCSELs. For these devices, analytical methods of calculating the optical response provide sufficient accuracy for initial design prototyping and optimization and are considerably faster than direct simulations of Maxwell’s equations. Lumerical provides a set of 1D optical stack functions that accurately captures the interference and microcavity effects in multilayer stacks and can be used for rapid analysis of these devices. In most cases, less than one second of calculation time is required to calculate and characterize the optical response of system.
In this webinar, we will focus on how to design OLED/LED devices quickly and efficiently with the optical stack functions. We will start with the initial characterization of a multilayer stack by studying the transmission, reflection, and field characteristics under plane wave illumination at various angles and frequencies. Then, we will extend the study to model spontaneous emission processes with dipole illumination. The optical stack functions are especially useful here since they can accurately capture the geometry-dependent microcavity effects on the quantum yield and overall radiance of the OLED/LED. We will demonstrate this through practical examples including the effect of material dispersion and anisotropy.
English language sessions will be held on May 9th at 09:00 PST, and May 10th at 18:00 PST. A Korean session will be held on May 10th at 19:00 KST (11am GST).
