Introduction Non-Sequential volume objects are 3D volumes which define some region of space. There are two major types of objects supported:   Parametric objects, like the Standard Lens object. This is defined by parameters like front radius of curvature, back rad...

Introduction Defining polygon objects is one of many ways of creating user-definable objects in Zemax.  Polygon objects are objects that are composed of a collection of triangles in 3D space, whose vertices are defined in an ASCII text file.  The file format may be create...

Introduction A segmented mirror adaptive optical system can adjust the positions of its segments to minimize aberrations. In an astronomical telescope, adaptive optics can reduce some of the aberrations introduced by the Earth's atmosphere. Zemax can model adaptive optics...

Introduction In non-sequential ray tracing, there are many capabilities that are simply unavailable in sequential mode. This is mainly due to the fact that non-sequential rays are allowed to interact with any object in their path, and can split into fully traceable child ...

Introduction Ray tracing is a widely applicable technique for modeling the propagation of light through an optical system. The modeling of light propagation via ray tracing is commonly called geometrical optics.   In sequential ray tracing, rays are traced through a p...

How to Show Rays in SolidWorks Zemax would like to thank Dave Mansur from OPTRA, Inc. for providing us with the Solidworks™ details in this article. It is often useful to export rays along with the optical components of your design to be viewed in a 3D CAD program.  W...

Introduction In 2010, the default text encoding in Zemax OpticStudio was changed from ANSI to Unicode to support multiple language interfaces. Unicode is considered an industry standard for representation of world wide text sets. While most applications can easily process Un...

The term fluorescence describes the process by which light is absorbed within an object and then re-emitted at a different (usually longer) wavelength. The light may also be (and usually is) re-emitted at a different angle. This process can be modeled in the non-sequential mo...
