Zemax February 2022 Optical Design Events

It was amazing to see so many of our optics and photonics industry friends in person for the first time in two years at Photonics West 2022 last week!  

We are looking forward to seeing you at more in-person and virtual events in the coming months. Here is what is happening at Zemax!

Zemax Webinars & Events:  

Zemax Optical Design Product Webinar: What's New in 22.1

What's New in Zemax 22.1 Product Release
February 10, 2022
6:00 am & 11:00 am PST

Zemax recently launched new updates for both OpticStudio®, OpticStudio® STAR Module, and OpticsBuilder. In this webinar, Tom Pickering, Esteban Carbajal, and Lisa Clauson will review the new features included in the 22.1 release and demonstrate how these new features work within the software. 

Zemax Community: Ask an Engineer Event

Ask an Engineer Event
Hosted on the Zemax Community
February 17, 2022
8:00 am PST

Join us for our monthly “Ask an Engineer” event! Hui Chen will be answering your questions about modeling fiber coupling in OpticStudio.  

Zemax OpticStudio STAR Module Webinar: From Concept to CubeSat: Design and Iterate Faster with Zemax Software

From Concept to CubeSat: Design and Iterate Faster with Zemax Software
February 24, 2022
6:00 am & 11:00 am PST

In this webinar, we will demonstrate how the Zemax software suite can be leveraged to take a CubeSat design through these modelling steps. Starting with an optical design in Zemax OpticStudio, we will showcase how to apply an opto-mechanical retaining system to the design with Zemax OpticsBuilder, run an FEA analysis with Ansys software, and how FEA data can be used to examine impacts on system performance with OpticStudio’s STAR module. Learn how these discrete modelling steps can be united with Zemax software.

Micro-Optical Objective Design Strategies for Robotic Surgery -- Concept through Production
March 10, 2022
6:00 am & 11:00 am PST

Micro optics for medical devices carry a higher burden than commercial or industrial applications where sterilization, compliance and materials play a greater role. In this talk, a generic set of opto-mechanical requirements will be studied to show the process of optical form and design through opto-mechanics, tolerance analysis and production considerations. This practical approach will reveal the top lens design forms and build on the initial design to construct an opto-mechanical sub-assembly for the application.
