With the 2023 R2 release, Ansys Optics continues to deliver innovation to our industry-leading software tools, addressing our customers' needs for state-of-the-art optical design and workflow optimization. Helping our customers save time and money while enabling them to bring products to market faster.
This tool allows the user to select the files to copy to the project directory and the ones to load from the Ansys Zemax root folder. The tool provides the ability to include additional project files that contain information about the project.
The Optics Launcher is installed with all Optics products in 2023 R2 except OpticsBuilder. Launch all your installed applications or request trial licenses for different products. The Application Gallery contains example simulation projects and provides links to let you set your Ansys licenses.
Component RBMs Tool enables customers to insert Coordinate Breaks into the Lens Data Editor based on rigid-body motion with just a few clicks.
FEA Symmetry Tool significantly speeds up the overall STOP workflow in cases where symmetrical assumptions are used for the FEA simulation. FEA datasets can be mirrored or rotated to cover the optical surface completely before loading into OpticStudio.
Improve your optics workflow to spend more time validating and adding quality to your designs. Automate workflows with our API. With OpticStudio STAR (Enterprise edition only) quickly analyzes the impacts of structural and thermal loads.
“By enhancing its optical design workflow using OpticStudio’s native RCWA algorithm, Vivo boosts productivityto stay innovative and competitive in a fast-moving market.”
Vivo's customers continuously seek new features and improvements that give them the latest and greatest applications for optics technologies. Many of the most impactful recent developments use diffractive optical elements (DOEs), which utilize the wave characteristics of light to achieve new levels of functionality, performance, and miniaturization for camera lenses and augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR) equipment.
Designs that include DOE require diffractive optics simulation capabilities beyond those of traditional geometric optics. To achieve these DOE capabilities, Vivo wrote code that implemented the new simulation types needed for testing and tolerancing the DOE-based designs. Vivo remained mindful of the ongoing need to achieve the miniaturization and performance their customers expected. Developing these designs gave Vivo access to valuable new features they could now offer in their cell phone and AR/VR products. Vivo wanted a reliable way of doing this quickly to achieve the time-to-market goals required to maintain a competitive advantage.
