Version 18.4 of OpticStudio software from Zemax offers various improvements and enhancements for virtual prototyping of optical systems, according to the company. New features in this iteration of the software include:

  • New full-field aberration analysis – Use this new analysis plot to improve freeform surface design and visualize how aberrations change across the full field of view.
  • Updates to the non-sequential converter – Use this tool to automatically convert sequential systems with off-axis mirrors or custom lenses to the equivalent non-sequential system.
  • New compound lens object – Use this new non-sequential object to simulate complex lenses for stray light analysis or optomechanical design.
  • New Boolean native object – Use this new object to run faster, more accurate, and more reliable ray traces with Boolean combinations of non-sequential objects.

Zemax also added new usability updates, including a new search capability and a new bookmark feature.
