ZEMAX OpticStudio 14 – Premium Edition
Simulation tool for the design and optimization of imaging and non-imaging optical systems (lenses, cameras, telescopes, microscopes, lamps, lights, displays, sensors, photovoltaic components, etc.) based on sequential and non-sequential ray tracing technology.
This simulation tool is based on "field tracing", which combines classical optical modeling technologies such as geometric ray tracing with electromagnetic methodological approaches. In this way, optical systems can be simulated such that diffraction, interference, partial coherence, aberrations and polarization are taken into full account.
Rhinoceros is a CAD program that enables the creation and editing of precise NURBS 3D surface and volumetric models. It has multiple import and export formats available that allow easy access to the optical simulation tools.
