June Webinars

Part 2: Zemax – Lumerical: from Nano-Scale to Macro-Scale Optics and Back
Wednesday, June 28, 2017 9:00-10:00 AM PST

In this webinar, we will examine how a combination of Lumerical’s FDTD Solutions and Zemax’s OpticStudio can be used to design ultra-thin optical components (metasurfaces), which are essential for development of high performance wearable optical devices/systems such as virtual and augmented reality. For this application, it is critical to use a combination of electromagnetic field solvers to accurately determine the phase and field profile of the metalens and ray tracing to optimize the desired lens properties. Our guest speaker is Reza Khorasaninejad from Harvard University, one of the leading researchers using planar metalenses for applications in the visible range.

LensMechanix functionality and benefits

Thursday, June 29, 2017 7:00-8:00 PM PST

LensMechanix is a SOLIDWORKS add-in for mechanical engineers. With LensMechanix, you can load OpticStudio files as native SOLDIWORKS components, eliminating the need for STEP and IGES files. When you finish designing the mechanical housing, you can run a ray trace to check if the mechanical components affect the optical performance. You can then correct any errors in the mechanical design in LensMechanix before you create a physical prototype.
