Understanding the Detector Polar

The Detector Polar object stores the intensity data from NSC source rays that strike it. The Detector Polar is spherical in shape but the resulting data distributions in the angular domains are displayed in 2D. And this point can cause confusion.
The aim of this article is to explain clearly how OpticStudio maps rays striking 3D sphere onto a 2D intensity plot. It also gives some details on the conventions used in OpticStudio.

Adjusting Relative Luminosity to Simulate the Visible Spectrum

Relative luminosity is very important in optical design. By defining appropriate weighting per the characteristics of the optical system, we can better model what we would expect to see. This article demonstrates a method of using wavelength weighting to model the relative luminosity of the visible spectrum as perceived by the human eye.

How to Connect to the ZOS-API with the Interactive Extension using Matlab

In this article, we will show how to connect to the ZOS-API with the new Interactive Extension using Matlab. The Interactive Extension mode is almost identical to a User Extension except an Interactive Extension does not have to be a standalone executable. This capability allows connections from scripting environments such as Matlab or Python where there is no compiled executable that OpticStudio can launch.
