Structural, Thermal and Optical Performance (STOP) Analysis in CODE V

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.
