Optical heart rate sensor simulation using Zemax OpticStudio

Optical heart rate sensor simulation using Zemax OpticStudio

In recent years, handheld, portable, and wearable medical imaging devices have grown in popularity, from fast on-site measurements during surgeries, to comfortable continuous monitoring during everyday tasks. The most common wearable example is the optical heart rate sensor used in sport bracelets and smart watches. The applied photoplethysmography (PPG) technology is a low cost, non-invasive optical method used for taking physiological measurements at the surface of the skin. This article demonstrates how OpticStudio can be used to implement a layered human skin model and simulate optical heart rate monitoring via the API.

Designing a head-mounted display (HMD) for augmented reality systems in OpticStudio

Designing a head-mounted display (HMD) for augmented reality systems in OpticStudio

With the continued growth of the augmented reality/virtual reality field (AR/VR), Zemax OpticStudio offers the tools needed to design the next generation of these systems. In the case of optical see-through head-mounted displays (OST-HMD), the system utilizes augmented reality (AR) by optimizing two optical paths: the microdisplay projection imaging path and the see-through path. This is because AR overlays graphics onto the user's real environment, rather than wholly replacing it, which is extremely useful in a variety of applications randing from aiding surgeons to displaying tactical information for military use.
