Who’d have thought you could attend a conference and stay home at the same time? Because of the current world health situation, many conferences are now online, including the SPIE Optics + Photonics conference. In just a few weeks, SPIE will host this annual event as a free digital forum.
Success Story: Designing the World’s First Fully Digital 3D Digital Surgical Microscope with LightTools
When ARRI Medical wanted to make the ARRISCOPE, the world’s first, high-definition, fully digital 3D surgical microscope, they turned to Julius Muschaweck from JMO GmbH; Gauting for the illumination system design. Read this success story on how Muschaweck used LightTools to get the job done on schedule.
Introducing our new Synopsys Optical and Photonic Solutions YouTube channel, featuring brief video tutorials and informative overviews of Synopsys design tools. If you’re short on time, but need to learn new features fast, bookmark this channel for the latest about our optical design software.
Join us for this month’s CODE V and LightTools Tech Talks. Read the round-up in this blog entry.
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.
The Synopsys Optical Solutions Group invites you to participate in its Robert S. Hilbert Memorial Optical Design Competition, which recognizes excellence in optical design projects completed by students. You’ll have a chance to win a portion of a $10,000 prize. Entries are due on June 15, 2020.
The Synopsys Optical Solutions Group is proud to announce our new series of online tech talks. We’ve pulled together a great lineup featuring product training and optical design case studies. Register today for any or all of these talks!
With many of us working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to forgo travel, trips, attending trade shows, and in-person training. Many trade shows have been cancelled or postponed. Connecting with people has been challenging, and we have been relying on technology and the internet to get in touch with colleagues. So, as you settle in at your home office, we have made a way for you to connect with us and make the most of your time working from home. Here are some training resources and upcoming webinars. Also, connect with us on social media.
LightTools version 9.0, now available, introduces valuable new tools to help optical engineers and stray light analysts pinpoint and correct stray light issues early in the product design process, saving time and money.
