Engineer the future of optics.

Improve optical performance.
Shorten time to market.
Reduce costs.

Harness the power of Zemax software

By harnessing the power of OpticStudio®, LensMechanix®, and OpticsViewer™, optical, mechanical, and manufacturing engineers can speak the same language across the optical product development process. Product engineering teams can share complete design data and analyze performance in a virtual model, reducing design iterations and physical prototypes—saving time and money.

Applications

IMAGING OPTICS
OpticStudio and LensMechanix are the tools of choice for scientists and engineers designing imaging optics and the mechanical packaging for devices such as telescopes, cameras, and sensors for the Mars rover, and two-photon microscopes for neurological imaging.

LASERS AND FIBERS
Laser and fiber technologies span a vast range of applications, from common household products to laser guidance systems, fluorescence imaging, fiber optic sensors, and laser materials processing.

LIGHTING AND ILLUMINATION
Producing uniform, or smoothly varying, illumination patterns from real light sources is critical in optical systems design. This type of lighting and illumination design is complex, since illumination sources tend to be nonuniform.
