Second Generation Technology Update

Beginning of a paradigm shift in optical modeling and design

Highlights and Benefits


Physical optics modeling often as fast as ray tracing.

Automatic modeling selection enables physical optics modeling as easy as the application of ray tracing. 

Easy switching between ray tracing and physical optics modeling. 

Inclusion of Maxwell solvers for gratings, diffractive lenses and HOEs on planar and curved surfaces. 

Full flexibility of non-sequential modeling configuration including all or a customized selection of surfaces and gratings orders. 

Design of diffractive lenses with fabrication data export.

Switching between sequential and non-sequential modeling forth and back in the same system setup.

Sophisticated source models including lasers, laser diodes with astigmatism, VCSELs, LEDs, partially coherent, fs pulse and x-ray sources.

Unsurpassed flexibility to define detector functions including energy quantities, polarization, coherence, spatiotemporal fs pulse quantities, amplitude and phase, dot diagrams, wavefront error, and aberrations.

Integration of customized sources, surfaces, media, detectors and user-defined physical models in ray tracing and physical optics without mentionable reduction of modeling performance.
