Five Ways to Enhance the Accuracy of Automotive Optical Simulations

When designing automotive optical systems, it’s important to know as precisely as possible the optical characteristics of the materials that will be used inside and outside the vehicle. This will give you accurate data to simulate and evaluate the optical systems and how they interact with the materials. You will be able to create an accurate prototype more quickly and have confidence in the simulation results.

How to Reduce Stray Light in Your Optical Design Project with Scattering Measurements

As technology evolves, optics also evolve to meet the demanding needs of product development. Optical design simulations must be as accurate as possible, which in turn requires accurate characterization of materials such as plastics, diffusers, displays, and other surfaces used in optical systems. One of the most important tasks for an optical design team is to understand and reduce the impact of stray light on design performance. What is an effective way to do this? This is where light scattering measurements can be very effective.
