Shake your fear of the Application Programming Interface and unleash its power

Shake your fear of the Application Programming Interface and unleash its power

In Optics, integrating highly complex optical and mechanical components is occurring more than ever before. How do you get relevant information from your complex optical system when Zemax OpticStudio is not designed to address a particular scenario?

The Application Programming Interface (API) is a powerful tool that can enhance, automate, and expand the design and analysis capabilities of Zemax OpticStudio. These additional capabilities provided by the API can virtually adapt to all modeling needs. While object-oriented coding for APIs can be frightening, it does not have to be! Once you are introduced to a simple usage of the API, you are in!

Powerful API in OpticStudio Used to Simulate X-ray Interforometers

Powerful API in OpticStudio Used to Simulate X-ray Interforometers

Currently, x-ray imaging has fairly poor resolution.  The systems must image large areas, such as a patient’s ribcage or a traveler’s suitcase, so the detector pixels are large.  The x-rays interact weakly with many materials, too, making it difficult to distinguish between, for example, liquids and powders. 

Jeff Wilde and Lamertus Hesslink at Stanford University have shown that a simple Talbot-Lau x-ray interferometer can be used to achieve much higher image resolutions, without improving either the source or the detector of the system.  In addition, they can analyze the contrast of the fringes to create “dark field” images that can distinguish between materials that scatter the x-rays in different ways.
