Abstract

Thermo-optical simulation is a mandatory enhancement of classical ray tracing, since nowadays many fields in the branch of optical technology have to deal with thermal effects. This paper discusses an approach for coupling the finite element method (FEM) and ray tracing simulation by processing finite element (FE) data using scattered data approximation techniques, particularly with an adaptive weighted least squares approximation algorithm in two dimensions. The validation of the implemented interface is being conducted by comparing approximated data to analytical functions. Finally, FEM data are being processed by the developed algorithm to demonstrate the applicability on appropriate problems.
