Zemax Webinars & Events:  

Using Skew Rays to Model Laser Beams
April 14, 2022
6:00 am & 11:00 am PDT

In this webinar, Lumentum’s Paul Colbourne will describe how to use skew rays to model Gaussian beam propagation in OpticStudio. Skew rays are an efficient and accurate representation of Gaussian beams and can be used to quickly optimize for best focus or to minimize aberrations. Paul will demonstrate how to set up User-Defined Surfaces to generate skew rays, how to view circular Gaussian beams in 3D layout diagrams, and how to optimize systems with circular Gaussian beams. In addition, Paul will explain general astigmatism, and how to calculate the properties of a generally astigmatic Gaussian beam in OpticStudio using a ZPL macro. Paul will also show how to use a merit function macro to optimize systems with elliptical or generally astigmatic Gaussian beams.

Hosted on the Zemax Community
April 14, 2022
8:00 am PDT

Join us for our monthly “Ask an Engineer” event! Flurin Herren will be answering your questions about OpticStudio-CAD interoperability and OpticsBuilder.  

The Hidden Cost of CAD Time
April 21, 2022
6:00 am & 11:00 am PDT

Join Lisa Clauson, Ansys Zemax Senior Product Manager, as she explores the hidden costs of traditional workflows that bring optical designs to a finished product. Most optical design teams have learned to accept their current workflow inefficiencies as the cost of doing business. Few realize the true costs of maintaining status quo when new technology is available to automate tedious tasks, improve optomechanical packaging, and dramatically streamline the overall optomechanical design workflow.

Laser Applications
April 28, 2022
6:00 am & 11:00 am PDT

Laser beam propagation requires unique considerations when setting up models in optical design software. OpticStudio has a wide range of tools and capabilities for modeling laser applications. This webinar demonstrates various laser applications and components that can be simulated using OpticStudio.

A look forward to May events!
