Extreme Ultraviolet lithography is a vital step in the production of cutting edge computer chips that drive emergent technologies like AI, VR and the internet of things [1]. Careful control of Ultraviolet light beams by EUV machine modules such as the Unicom, Uniformity correction module, enable extremely precise printing of nano-scale...

This work aims to provide guidelines on the design of wideband flat lenses based on artificial dielectric layers (ADLs). Planar lenses based on metasurfaces are typically narrowband, due to the phase wrapping over the period of 2\pi that is strongly frequency-dependent. On the contrary, true-time-delay (TTD) planar lenses, which do not resort...

A semi-analytical method is presented for the design of gradient index (GRIN) flat lenses. Closed-form expressions are derived to define the refractive index distribution of the lens, for several cases: collimating lenses with on-axis feed, collimating lenses with off-axis feed, lenses converting spherical wavefronts with different...

Increasing wireless communication requirements of data rates, capacity and coverage, and evolution and maturation of wireless equipment prompt wireless communication research insight concentrating on millimeter wave (mm-wave) frequency. However, high reflection coefficients and high path loss cause large shadow areas (e.g. behind the buildings)...

A novel approach for determining the optimal location of a sound source within an acoustic environment is proposed. This approach involves the application of Importance Sampling to improve the efficiency of the existing method of acoustic ray-tracing for finding the frequency response at various listening locations. The results of this study do...

Algorithmic differentiable ray tracing is a new paradigm that allows one to solve the forward problem of how light propagates through an optical system while obtaining gradients of the simulation results with respect to parameters specifying the optical system. Specifically, the use of algorithmically differentiable non-sequential ray tracing...

In this thesis, an efficient optimization method is described for synthesizing lens antennas fabricated in low permittivity plastic materials to achieve wide scanning performances. The method is based on an antenna in reception representation. The optimized parameters are the location and orientation of the antenna feeder, lens angular region...

Differentiable ray-tracing is an exciting new development in computer graphics to approach all sorts of 3D scene design problems by obtaining gradients of renders produced by ray-tracing with respect to parameters that define the scene. These gradients can then be incorporated in a gradient-descent type optimization pipeline.<br/><br/>One such...

The Atmoscope is the idea to use the atmosphere of a planet as a telescopic lens. It uses the refractive properties of an atmosphere to converge light rays to a focal line. It has been hypothesized that using Earth’s atmosphere could, under favorable circumstances, yield an amplification of 55; 000 for a detector that has a surface area of 1m2....

The observations of the Event Horizon Telescope led to the first mages of a black hole, an object with so much gravity that not even light can escape it. These images remain fuzzy but clearly show the shadow of a black hole with a bright disk and will only improve in quality over time. We want to be able to deduce, from the images, the following...

Indirect illumination is an essential part of realistic computer-generated imagery. However, accurate calculation of indirect illumination comes at high compute costs. To this end, we replace lengthy indirect illumination paths by employing an ambient light cache based on photon mapping principles. By only performing cache queries after a...

Direct lighting calculation is an essential part of photorealistic rendering. Standard importance sampling techniques converge slowly in scenes where a light source is only visible through small openings as visibility is not considered. This problem is often addressed by manually placing light portals, marking the openings to the light. However,...

The accurate computation of the irradiance incident on the surface of photovoltaic modules is crucial for the simulation of the energy yield of a photovoltaic system. Depending on the geometrical complexity of the surroundings, different approaches are commonly employed to calculate the irradiance on the photovoltaic system. In this article,...

Electromagnetic (EM) waves propagate through the atmosphere where they are refracted depending on the composition of the atmosphere. This refraction highly influences the propagation of the EM-waves. Certain atmospheric conditions can cause EM-waves to get trapped within a duct. In these ducts blind zones may occur, where there is no EM-wave...

YAG: Ce3+ phosphor/silicone composites are widely used in solid-state lighting as a light converter to achieve white lighting. However, because of high thermal resistance and low thermal stability, the luminous performance of YAG: Ce3+ phosphor/silicone composite deteriorates rapidly when excited by high-power-density blue-laser. To explore...

Global Illumination provides natural and more realistic illumination of a scene by simulating the bouncing of light between surfaces. Due to its complex nature, it still remains a challenge to simulate this effect with real-time frame rates even on modern-day hardware. Existing methods are noisy and either require extensive filtering or long...

This master thesis investigates the aerodynamic response of the Hyperloop breach failure scenario. Using a scaled physical test setup, the air pressure inside a Hyperloop tube is lowered to 10 mbar, emulating Hyperloop conditions. By opening a breach hole inside the tube, air will flow into the tube due to the pressure difference with the...

Solar cells are usually used as power source, but can be used for sensing as well. We propose a novel indoor tracking system that tracks people by using the change in output caused by their shadows. First, we develop a simulator to determine how the solar cells should be positioned in the tracking environment to get the best detection rate. This...

Mirror anamorphosis is characterised by a distorted projection, where the combination of a mirror and a specific viewpoint lets the observer see the undistorted image. The use of this technique and complex perspective in general has gone from being niche to becoming mainstream. Raytracing poses itself as a solution to solving the math for such...

This paper accelerates the rendering of diffusion curves using the ray tracing cores found on modern NVIDIA graphics cards using the method described by Bowers et al. [Bowers, Leahey and Wang 2011]. This method approximates the final result of the Poisson equation and in this paper is accelerated using Optix and dedicated ray tracing hardware....
