OpticStudio Frequently Asked Support Questions

April 6th 2016

OpticStudio is a powerful and intuitive program for optical and illumination system design, but even the experts sometimes need help. Join us to learn the answers to the most frequently asked support questions. This month we will discuss:

  • When should I use "sequential mode" for optical simulation and design?
  • When should I use "non-sequential mode" instead?
  • When do I need to use "physical optics propagation" and when is it accurate?
  • How do I define sources in each?
