Introducing OpticStudio 17

The latest release of our flagship product

Introducing OpticStudio 17

OpticStudio 17 is here! The essential software platform for optical engineers includes unprecedented new capabilities:

  • Optimize for MTF at least 10 times faster using Contrast Optimization, an innovative new feature that uses the Moore-Elliott method

  • Simulate and design complex freeform systems with more than 200 field points

  • Simulate a wide variety of phosphors and fluorophores with a photoluminescence model that is more accurate than any other ray tracing software

  • Build custom applications with the new API documentation, which includes 100 new examples and code snippets for MATLAB, C#, C++, and Python


New Contrast Optimization feature

Standard, Professional, and Premium include analysis, optimization, and tolerancing enhancements, such as:

  • Generate systematic distributions of field points with the new Fields Wizard

  • Easily navigate, manage, and sort large numbers of sequential field points using the new Field Data Editor

  • Create a better design faster using the Spot X+Y criterion in the Merit Function Wizard. The improved algorithm makes this the fastest way to optimize for small spot sizes

  • Analyze MTF, wavefront error, and aberrations at any orientation using Tangential Angle (TAN) calculations

As with all OpticStudio editions, OpticStudio 17 includes a comprehensive set of support modules, including stock lens and materials catalogs, help files, and links to Knowledgebase articles. Read the release notes to learn more or get a free trial today.
