How to simulate out-of-field rejection in LensMechanix

November 29, 2017

To ensure that a mechanical design protects the integrity of an optical system, light sources that exist beyond the specified field of view must be analyzed. These sources can impact optical performance by causing stray light, loss of contrast, or flaring.

Learn how to:
Calculate optical performance in LensMechanix Add out-of-field sources before running a ray trace Set up a surface power analysis Use ray trace data to assess the effectiveness of mechanical components.
