CODE V Feature Close-Up: Beam Synthesis Propagation

CODE V’s Beam Synthesis Propagation (BSP) option simulates the general diffraction propagation of an optical field through an optical system. Its output can be as exhaustive as the complex 3D vector information of the optical field at any surface throughout the optical system.

Modeling Specialized Optical Properties Using LightTools UDOPs

In LightTools, a “User Defined Optical Property” (UDOP) can be created to model specialized optical surface properties that are not included in the standard selection of optical properties. The optical properties defined by a UDOP can be used to model actual physical effects such as birefringence, diffraction gratings, scattering, polarization, and patterned surfaces. A UDOP can also be used to effect non-physical functions such as beam replication, displacement and re-aiming, or the definition of customized receiver elements. Read our latest white paper discussing UDOPs.
