OpticStudio-OpticsBuilder Interoperability in Design of Optical Spectrometer
Join Mojtaba Falahati, Senior Application Engineer, as he explores the optical-optomechanical design cycle for lens-grating-lens spectrometers using commercially available optical elements and describes how Zemax tools enable a joint workflow to turn optical designs into reality. Optical spectrometers are instruments to measure the intensity of light as a function of wavelength. OpticStudio simulates the spectrometer setup, improves, and optimizes the optical design, and converts the optimized model to a CAD friendly format.
Then, mechanical packaging using off-the-shelf components can be efficiently implemented in OpticsBuilder while accessing the live optics. Interoperability between OpticStudio and OpticsBuilder streamlines the design process by:
Effective communication between optical and mechanical designers as they navigate the design changes.
Real-time visualization of impact on optical performance while designing optomechanics.
Detecting costly errors early in the design process.
Hassle-free export to OpticStudio for advanced analysis.
