The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is a very large, complex, challenging mission, and the Synopsys optical engineering team has been privileged to be a member of the JWST Product Integrity Team throughout this demanding project. Launch is scheduled for December 24, 7:20 a.m. EST.
The Synopsys LucidDrive tool – part of the LucidShape product family — allows engineers to test automotive headlight models prior to manufacturing with virtual night-driving simulations. The latest LucidDrive release, version 2021.12, offers enhanced features to dynamically validate and refine pixel light headlamp models.
How can you split someone up and put them back together? This was the illumination design problem posed at the 2021 International Optical Design Conference (IODC), hosted by the Optical Society of America, now Optica. A member of our Optical Solutions team, Dr. Jake Jacobsen, used LightTools illumination design software to solve the 2021 illumination problem. Read how he produced the winning solution.

On September 21-22, 2021, Synopsys hosted its annual Photonic Symposium to convey the current state of the integrated photonics market and its diverse end applications.
Synopsys offers multiple solutions for measuring the light scattering properties of displays. Read this article on how you can measure the bidirectional scattering distribution function (BSDF) scattering of a display. With this data, it is easier and faster to evaluate light scattering of electronic displays and determine their performance.
Do you have a diffused glass and coating on your horticultural lighting application? Synopsys provides an easy solution to measure glass and coating performance and optical properties.
We are pleased to announce the winners of Synopsys’ 2021 Robert S. Hilbert Memorial Optical Design Competition. Our annual competition celebrates exceptional optical design research projects by college students in North America who use Synopsys’ optical software solutions. Meet our 10 winners!
