Abstract
Numerical simulation of complex optical structures enables their optimization with respect to specific objectives. Often, optimization is done by multiple successive parameter scans, which are time consuming and computationally expensive. We employ here Bayesian optimization with Gaussian processes in order to automatize and speed up the optimization process. As a toy example, we demonstrate optimization of the shape of a free-form reflective meta surface such that it diffracts light into a specific diffraction order. For this example, we compare the performance of six different Bayesian optimization approaches with various acquisition functions and various kernels of the Gaussian process.
