Working with Freeform Optics

WORKING WITH FREEFORM OPTICS IN OPTICSTUDIO 15, March 23, 2016

OpticStudio 15 makes it easier than ever for users to design many types of freeform systems.  At the webinar, we will discuss: 
  • Surface Type Selection Tool – NEW in OpticStudio 15
  • NEW Chebyshev Polynomial surface type in sequential mode: What it is and why to use it
  • Example: Transforming Gaussian to Uniform Illumination using a Chebyshev Polynomial Surface
  • Freeform Z object in non-sequential mode
  • Example: Optimization of an LED-Collimating Lightpipe in Non-Sequential Mode
