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.

Using Physical Optics Propagation (POP), Part 3: Inspecting the beam phases

This article is Part 3 of a series that works through an example system to show the correct way to use Physical Optics Propagation (POP).  In part 1, we discussed the example system and looked at the beam file viewer.  In part 2, we looked at the beam intensities and problems that can arise with the intensities.  In part 3, we’ll look at the beam phases and problems that can arise in the phase profiles of the beam.

Using Physical Optics Propagation (POP), Part 2: Inspecting the beam intensities

This article explores problems that can appear in the beam intensity profiles when using Physical Optics Propagation (POP) in OpticStudio.  The beams can be undersampled and/or can lack an adequate guard band around the beam. We demonstrate several fixes for these problems.
