Bring ideas to life with a platform that includes the industry’s most comprehensive set of analysis and simulation tools to design systems.
Automatically improve the performance of designs based on user-defined constraints, saving time by eliminating manual tests of design iterations.
Advanced tools help engineers incorporate manufacturing and assembly limits into design constraints to ensure manufacturability and production efficiency.
Accelerate conventional non-sequential ray tracing by orders of magnitude. Modify system parameters with real-time results and quickly optimize and tolerance systems.
Stock Lens Matching
Search vendor catalogs for off-the-shelf optical components to replace custom components. This can save you considerable costs in the finished design by eliminating the need for custom manufacturing.
Design complex, custom CAD components to incorporate in a non-sequential optical system as fully parametric parts or to export to CAD formats.
Optimize systems for MTF at least 10 times faster with Contrast optimization – a 2018 Laser Focus World Innovation award winner.

Thousands of organizations use our software to develop cutting-edge optical products. Here’s what a few of them have to say.
"I’ve been a Zemax/OpticStudio user for over twenty years and have utilized virtually every aspect of the software. Without question, Zemax/OpticStudio is my go-to simulation package for free-space optical system design and analysis."
Jeffrey P. Wilde, Optical Technology Consultant
"OpticStudio helped keep our costs down. Using OpticStudio, we can design multiple solutions and figure out that sweet spot between cost/complexity and performance. We can decide when to push for higher performance or tighter tolerances, and when it’s satisfactory at a lower tolerance."
Derek Nankivil, PhD student
"It has been great to see the strides that Zemax has been making in lens design and optical simulation. I enjoy using OpticStudio so much that I look forward to using it in my job day to day."
