Corner Cube Retroreflector
Application ID: 19257
A corner cube retroreflector can be used to reflect rays so that their reinitialized trajectories are parallel to their initial trajectories, regardless of the angle of incidence. This tutorial model shows how to simulate the reflection of a bundle of rays at a cube corner retroreflector using the Geometrical Optics interface.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:Ray Optics Module
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
