BeamXpertDESIGNER - Simulation Software for Laser Beam Propagation

The easy-to-learn software BeamXpertDESIGNER is exactly adapted to the needs of laser developers and users and the very fast basic algorithm enables 3D real-time simulation.

Users in industry and research regularly face the challenge of designing optical systems for the propagation and guidance of laser radiation.

However, previous optical simulation programs have been difficult to learn, complicated to use, slow to respond and did not meet the special requirements of users in the field.

BeamXpertDESIGNER provides parameters such as beam diameter, waist position and Rayleigh length as well as additional beam propagation parameters in accordance with ISO 11145 and 11146 at any point in the optical setup.

This allows BeamXpertDESIGNER to quickly and efficiently design optical systems for laser radiation.

Testimonials' statements

"BeamXpertDESIGNER answers the majority of our questions about optical system analysis in a fraction of the time it takes to perform equivalent investigations with other optical software on the market."

D. Brinkmeier, IFSW
BeamXpertDESIGNER - Testimonial IFSW

"BeamXpertDESIGNER is an integral part of our development process of very complex laser beam sources for the generation of extreme ultraviolet radiation (EUV) for wafer exposure. BeamXpertDESIGNER can visualize and analyze the 3D beam path at instantaneous speed from small functional prototypes to complete systems with more than 100 optical elements."

TRUMPF Lasersystems for Semiconductor Manufacturing GmbH
BeamXpertDESIGNER - Testimonial TRUMPF Semiconductor GmbH

"Good program for quick evaluation of beam paths."

Dr. T. Kettler, Sicoya GmbH
BeamXpertDESIGNER - Testimonial Sicoya GmbH

"BeamXpertDESIGNER has been an integral part of our research and development work since its first release: from simple simulation designs to complex pre-construction stages, the software has become an indispensable part of our everyday design and construction process for laser projectors."

H. Dittrich, Laser Animation Sollinger GmbH

BeamXpertDESIGNER - Laser Animation Sollinger GmbH

"10,000:1 is the typical aspect ratio of the output radiation of our Laser Line BeamSystems - BeamXpertDESIGNER can also process beam profiles with these extreme geometries."

Dr. R. Müller, Innovavent GmbH

BeamXpertDESIGNER - Testimonial Innovavent GmbH

"A further strength of BeamXpertDESIGNER is the comprehensive definition of various beam sources, such as Broad Area Laser, Tapered Laser/Amplifier and Single-Mode Laser. Even with elementary optical knowledge, significant results can be produced within a short time."

EAGLEYARD Photonics GmbH

BeamXpertDESIGNER - Testimonial EAGLEYARD Photonics GmbH

"As a developer of optical systems, the intuitive usage of BeamXpertDESIGNER and the associated "real-time visualization" in 3D is a great advantage."

About us

Spin-off of the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut

We are a team of PhD physicists with more than 50 years' experience in theoretical and practical laser physics who founded BeamXpert GmbH as a spin-off of the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH).

Due to our daily work the lack of an easy-to-use simulation software for laser radiation which allows calculation of the propagation of laser beams in optical systems was regularly brought to our attention.

The company headquarters in Berlin-Adlershof in the city for science, economy and media offers us a stimulating scientific environment. A national and international network in research and industry guarantees us regular feedback on the daily use of our software.
