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 non-uniform. OpticStudio® includes features that use advanced physics calculations for accurate results, simulation, and modeling. The unique combination of lighting, illumination, and optics features can only be found in OpticStudio.
