Astronomy was headline news on July 12, with the release of the amazing first full-color images from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). However, let’s not forget about the Hubble Space Telescope.
Learn how the new optical system file (.osf) format now enables a seamless transition for a CODE V model be opened in LightTools. Streamline product development time with the new and improved interoperability features between CODE V and LightTools, enabling you to easily simulate optical systems that contain imaging and non-imaging components.
For a complex optical system such as the James Webb Space Telescope, structural and thermal analyses are key to modeling the effects of mechanical, gravitational, and thermal influences on the optical system. This helps ensure the system can perform as expected after being subjected to the rigors of space launch and flight. Efficient modeling makes it easier to understand the impact of external influences on optical system performance and will save you time and money when bringing your optical designs to life. Learn how Synopsys CODE V optical design software offers effective Structural, Thermal and Optical Performance (STOP) analysis, which is supported by Sigmadyne SigFit Mechanical and Optical Analysis Software.
