Physically realistic simulation of optical systems

Light is omnipresent as the basis of our perception of reality. Therefore, it is extremely important to understand the variation in the propagation, distribution and composition of light. Within the framework of an optical simulation, such questions can be investigated based on ...

  • Workshop: Light density simulation of a vehicle rear light

04 Basic optical components

  • Examples of industrial lighting applications
  • Challenges in the design of optical components
  • Total Internal Reflection
  • Workshop: Parametric study of an optical fiber

Light is omnipresent as the basis of our perception of reality. Therefore, it is extremely important to understand the variation in the propagation, distribution and composition of light. Within the framework of an optical simulation, such questions can be investigated 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 with maximum fidelity to reality are then possible.

The seminar is aimed at anyone interested in understanding how to evaluate the optical properties of a system and how to model human eyesight. In addition, designers of luminaires, fiber optics and displays, who want to improve the luminosity 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 this seminar. In selected practical exercises, you will learn how to model and investigate optical systems using ANSYS SPEOS. This will help you to understand how optical systems can be systematically developed and evaluated.

Do you have questions on the training?

When will I receive the final confirmation for my training booking?

Straight after you sign up, an automatic confirmation of receipt will be sent to the email addresses you provided. Once you have successfully verified the data you provided, you will receive your personalized sign-up confirmation, containing further information on seminar fees, the billing address, hotel recommendations, etc., by email within two to three working days.  

As soon as the minimum number of attendees has been reached, you will receive a final training confirmation containing further information on how to get to the venue. We recommend that you wait until you have received this final confirmation before booking your travel and accommodation.

If the minimum number of attendees is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the training seven days before it is due to start at the latest. We are happy to help you change your booking to an alternative date. Please note that we accept no liability for hotel or travel bookings that attendees have already made.

When is the sign-up deadline for a training?

Training places will generally be allocated based on the order in which attendees sign up. For this reason, we always recommend booking for your desired date as early as possible.

As long as a seminar still has free places, it can be booked.

When do the training courses begin and end?

Usually the training courses start at 9:00 am and end at 5:00 pm of the respective local time. The actual course times will be stated in the booking confirmation. Please note that, depending on the training host, there may be a possible time shift between your and the provider's local time. Therefore all local times are provided with the valid time shift to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). 

The following time difference to GMT during summer/winter time applies to the individual training providers:
