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.
