Ray Optics Simulations

February 13, 2019 at 2:00 PM EST / 1:00 PM CST / 11:00 AM PST / 7:00 PM GMT

Event Description:

Tune into this webinar to learn about optical ray tracing using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software.

This presentation will include a live demo in the software, showing how to create a fully parameterized geometry of a typical lens system, trace rays through the system, and postprocess the results. We will also discuss more specialized ray features, such as the analysis of ray intensity and polarization. We will explain how the Ray Optics Module, an add-on product to COMSOL Multiphysics®, can be combined with structural and thermal simulation for highly accurate structural-thermal-optical performance (STOP) analysis.

You can ask questions throughout the webinar or at the end during the Q&A session.
