Ambient Light Sensors

OpticStudio has many capabilities to help design ambient light sensors, including the ability to model propagation at any part of the electromagnetic spectrum, including UV, visible, and infrared wavelengths. In addition, OpticStudio comes equipped with tools for broadband source modeling, source illumination, and a part designer, all facilitating the sensor design.  

 

Key features that support ambient light sensor design

Edition

Part designer – Design complex, custom CAD components within the OpticStudio environment. Parts remain fully parametric allowing optimization and tolerancing. Easily incorporate parts into a non-sequential optical system or export to CAD formats.

Source illumination - Instantaneously simulate far-field source illumination on a plane. Integrate source data from up to eight (8) sources to model far-field illumination without raytracing.
Premium
Broadband source modeling –  Accurate and flexible source modeling methods allow a white or polychromatic source to be defined with Tristimulus values, or measured spectral data, or even just a few wavelengths.
