Welcome to 2022! Zemax events and webinars to start the year off right

Category: Events

Zemax is starting 2022 with a full calendar of events! Visit us at SPIE Photonics West, catch Sanjay Gangadhara's talk "The Role of Simulation in Developing the Next Generation of Mixed Reality Systems"  at the SPIE AR | VR | MR Conference and take in a demo of OpticStudio STAR Module selected by SPIE and Photonics Media as a Prism Award finalist.

And don't forget to register for one of our many upcoming webinars!

Industry Events:

SPIE AR | VR | MR Conference
25 January, 2022
9:50AM PST
Moscone Center, Level 2 West, AR | VR | MR Stage
San Francisco, California, United States

The past several years have seen significant progress in the design of robust, scalable mixed reality systems. During that time, considerable investments have been made in the development of diffractive technologies for mixed reality. Nonetheless, catadioptric solutions are still a viable, if not preferred, alternative for many applications. Simulation is critical to determining the best technology for the desired application, and advanced technologies – such as Rigorous Coupled Wave Analysis – are required to simulate both solutions (diffractive vs. catadioptric). This talk will highlight the use of these advanced technologies in the design and development of next-generation mixed reality systems.

SPIE Photonics West 2022
25 - 27 January, 2022
San Francisco, California, United States
Booth #1843

Zemax is back at Photonics West, The world’s premier lasers, biomedical optics, and optoelectronics event in San Francisco this January! After two long years, our team cannot wait to kick of the new year with you in-person. Stop by booth 1843 to learn more about the newest Zemax product releases and get a sneak peek at what is coming later in the year.

Want to schedule time with one of our team members during the show? Reserve your meeting time now!

And don't miss our OpticStudio STAR Module demonstration to learn more about the SPIE and Photonics Media Prism Award Finalist. 

OpticStudio STAR Module Product Demonstration: From Concept to CubeSat: Design and Iterate Faster with Zemax Software
Tuesday, 25 January 2022
1:30 PM - 2:00 PM PST
Demo Area 1 (Hall ABC)

Zemax tools are designed to provide the insights needed to make mission-critical decisions. Learn how united optical, optomechanical, and STOP analysis accelerates the development of a space cubesat.

Zemax Webinars & Events: 

Simulating Infrared thermal detectors in OpticStudio
20 January, 2022
6:00 am & 11:00 am PST

This webinar will demonstrate how to model infrared thermal detectors in OpticStudio. We will first discuss how to describe thermal radiation accurately by blackbody sources. Then, we will show how to simulate the temperature calibration process of thermal detectors via the ZOS-API to enable not only qualitative analysis, but also accurate temperature measurements by these devices.

Ask An Engineer Event 
Registration opens soon!
Hosted on the Zemax Community
20 January, 2022
8:00 am PST

Our first “Ask an Engineer” event was such a great success that we are hosting another session on January 20th! This event will be hosted on the Zemax Community in text form with a focus on a spotlighted topic.

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


We hope to see you at one of these programs this month and be sure to visit our Upcoming Events Page for new updates.
