Frequently Asked Questions

All (almost) the functions of reZonator are described in included help file. Also you are welcome to ask any question via e-mail.

Does reZonator work under Linux or Mac?

There is no special version of program for Linux and Mac. But you can easy run reZonator under these systems using Wine. See tutorial.

Is reZonator source code available?

No. reZonator is freeware but not open-source program.

I’d like to have feature *** in reZonator. Can you implement it?

If you wish to have some new functionality needed for you, you can request it. If a function you have requested is enough simple and/or easy to implement it can be done for free and will be available for public. Otherwise you can order new functionality. New functions you have requested will be protected for using only by you personally via special license file, which you will get after payment.

Graph's axis does not show small values of variable (e.g. 1e-5 ~ 1e-4)
and shows only 000.

It is because of default axis labels format settings. See here for details.

Why misalignment function always shows zero values?

The misalignment functions calculates a position of effective optical axis but it only will differ from ideal axis when elements have misalignments. Try to specify angular and axial offset of element from ideal optical axis on the tab 'Other' of element properties dialog. See image.

It needs to allow for more significant figures for parameter magnitudes or resulting values.

Look for option 'Number of decimal places' in 'Parameters format' and 'Results format' sections of schema settings (Menu 'File -> Properties' or F11). See image.

Functions do not work, plots are empty

Sometimes you can see plots like this one, and it seems that function is not working. A plot can be looked empty when no stable operation over whole range of a variable parameter. To check it, you have to plot simple stability map with the same variable parameter, see image. Set minimum and maximum values of variable parameter so that variation range include stability to see proper results. Download example schema.

The «Setup Input Beam» command is not available (I cannot click on it)

rezonator can calculate only one schema at time. When you simulate a laser cavity, you can not simulate its pump road in the same schema, because of pump road includes as part of cavity elements so as several external elements. So to calculate a pump beam, you have to make a new schema, copy needed cavity elements into it, and append external elements - lenses, etc. Then you have to mark this schema as SP (Single Pass system) through Schema Properties dialog. Special icon will be displayed in the status bar, indicating that it is SP-system, and «Setup Input Beam» command will be available. You also can invoke this command by double-clicking on icon in the status bar.

Concave mirror is replaced by a lens placed in straight line

Lens in straight line is only representation. rezonator takes into account angles of lenses and mirrors indeed. There is an inclination angle parameter in properties of elements. See image.
