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.
Explore these four examples of how light scattering measurements can improve your optical product design.
Synopsys offers multiple solutions for measuring the light scattering properties of displays. Read this article on how you can measure the bidirectional scattering distribution function (BSDF) scattering of a display. With this data, it is easier and faster to evaluate light scattering of electronic displays and determine their performance.
Do you have a diffused glass and coating on your horticultural lighting application? Synopsys provides an easy solution to measure glass and coating performance and optical properties.
Taking the Guesswork Out of Optical Properties Characterization: Accurate Scattering Measurements That Optical Engineers Need
Synopsys now offers solutions for measuring the light scattering properties of materials and surfaces. You can measure how light interacts with a given surface or how light behaves in the volume of a solid. You can then simulate the results in LightTools illumination design software.
