Everything you need to design optical systems

Create optical, illumination, and laser systems with OpticStudio, the industry-leading optical design software.

OpticStudio features make your job easier.


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.

Part Designer

Design complex, custom CAD components to incorporate in a non-sequential optical system as fully parametric parts or to export to CAD formats.

Contrast Optimization

Optimize systems for MTF at least 10 times faster with Contrast optimization – a 2018 Laser Focus World Innovation award winner.
