Efficient and accurate modeling of light and its interaction with different materials and structures is a big challenge in optical engineering involving complex multiscale and multiphysics systems. Ultimately, the use of simulation leads to an understanding of how these optical and optically enabled product designs and systems function, which in turn informs how they can be improved in the future.
Looking through the lens of Ansys Speos optical system design software enables you to see and explore the propagation of light in three dimensions. This, as well as Speos’ interactive design capabilities, leads to correct first-time simulation results for optical surfaces, light guides, and optical lenses, enhanced by powerful light analysis and illumination evaluation capabilities across the electromagnetic spectrum.
Of course, innovation continues to boom in optical applications for a wide variety of markets, from automotive illumination and augmented or virtual reality (AR/VR) to medical equipment and consumer electronics. With these industries and trends in mind, Speos continues to deliver familiar, accurate, and high-performance simulation capabilities for optics designers — along with several new ones — to help speed up your time to results, improve simulation accuracy, and expand interoperability with other Ansys products.
With the 2023 R1 release of Ansys Speos, we're proud to announce the latest improvements:
Ultimately, illuminating insights in Speos can shed light on big design discoveries — whether you’re optimizing optical designs for AR/VR or mixed reality (MR) applications in glasses, headsets, and smartphones, or running head-up display (HUD) feasibility studies according to windshield shape and package constraints. With Speos, the power of illumination and optical system performance prediction is yours to improve efficiency while saving on prototyping time and costs.
Get the latest Speos version and optimize the ways you bring system-level design and validation to the optical systems you invent. To learn more, attend our What's New in Ansys Speos 2023 R1 webinar or contact Ansys to find out more.
