Cyl/Poly Design Simulations

Delay line design simulations using a polygonal mirror and 5cm focal cylindrical mirror. The top left sub-figure represents the 3-Dimensional view of the system. The bottom shows the projection of the system along the 3 primary axis. The middle and top-right sub-figures show the beam section and optical wavefront on the output surface of the delay-line. The modeled beam shown here is a 2mm by 2mm grid of parallel rays. All axes are in millimeters, except the wavefront height (top-right, vertical axis) which is in units of wavelength (1.08 micrometer).
