Introduction to Non-Sequential
This course is an introduction to non-sequential mode and ray-tracing in that mode. It will cover how sources and detectors are defined along with some radiometry reminders.
About This Course
This course includes the following content:
- Non Sequential Ray Tracing in OpticStudio
- Quick introduction of the non sequential mode and object placement
- Source Objects: how is a source defined? What are the common parameters for a source?
- Detector Objects: how is a detector defined? What are the common parameters for a detector? Presentation of the different detectors available.
- Illumination Units & Geometries: Quick reminder of photometry vocabulary and units
