Methods for Stray Light Analysis in OpticStudio

August 3rd, 2016

When designing an optical system end-to-end in OpticStudio, one of the last steps is to perform stray light analysis to eliminate unwanted noise in the system. Whether a design is completed in sequential or non-sequential modes, stray light is best analyzed in non-sequential mode, as it allows tracing both reflected and transmitted ray paths simultaneously and can model wide-angle surface scattering. 

This webinar covers: 
• How to apply coatings and scattering functions to mimic real-world performance 
• How to quantify stray light in the system 
• Identifying sources of stray light
