Simulation of Optical Systems with Ansys Speos
Simulation in the visible, UV and infrared range
From optical sensors to lighting solutions. In this training, you will learn to use the precision of Speos for your simulations.
Light is omnipresent as the basis of our perception of reality. It is therefore extremely important to understand and control the propagation, distribution, and composition of light. Within the framework of an optical simulation, such questions can be analyzed based on ...

Light is omnipresent as the basis of our perception of reality. It is therefore extremely important to understand and control the propagation, distribution, and composition of light. Within the framework of an optical simulation, such questions can be analyzed based on quantifiable characteristic quantities. With physics-based descriptions of the sources and material properties and a suitable environment for geometry preparation, the design, layout and validation of optical systems are possible with the highest level of accuracy.
This training is aimed at anyone interested in understanding how to evaluate the optical properties of a system and how to model human visual perception. In addition, designers of lights, lightguides and displays, who want to improve the brightness and homogeneity of the light distribution of their products, will have their needs addressed.
Starting from basic application examples, you will learn the most important aspects of light description. In selected practical exercises, you will learn how to model and analyze optical systems using Ansys Speos. This will help you to understand how optical systems can be systematically developed and evaluated.
