Ansys allows you to simulate the performance of optical systems using state-of-the-art methods, in turn allowing you to map true product behavior virtually.
Validate and optimize optical systems with Ansys
Whether it’s lighting design, laser technology, or sensor control, Ansys allows you to simulate your optical systems with physics-based fidelity to reality. Test new technical possibilities, validate the properties of your products, and create optimized prototypes in the development phase.
A general introduction to the simulation of optical systems
Photonics is a key technology and innovation driver for areas such as autonomous driving, connectivity and medical technology. With high sales and constant annual growth figures, the German photonics industry is an important trading partner for European, American and Asian companies.
Simulation of lighting design and effects
High simulation speed and high accuracy are offered by the complete Ansys software environment. Real-light simulation allows you to create uniform lighting for perfect lighting design. Light guide optimization allows light to be used individually to find and implement optimal lighting effects.
State-of-the-art image optics
Ansys Simulation allows you to develop state-of-the-art image optics for applications such as sensors and cameras. Special design systems for lenses allow for straightforward testing of different mechanical design variants.
UV and infra-red radiation systems
In practice, optical simulations are also used in the development of UV and infra-red radiation systems. Simulation helps to ensure that the radiation flux reaches precisely those areas or objects that it is supposed to reach in order to achieve optimal results.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
With its top products SPEOS and VRXPERIENCE, Ansys provides the tools, especially in the automotive industry, to develop Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). This involves the state-of the-art Virtual-Reality-based Xperience (VRX) to ensure the very best results.
Ansys for direct and flexible CAD integration
Ansys Optical flagship solution SPEOS can be seamlessly integrated into CAD solutions (e.g., PTC Creo or Siemens NX), eliminating the need for time-consuming data export and import. The SpaceClaim-based stand-alone version allows you to link all Ansys analysis and optimization tools via the Workbench. This allows you to generate an interactive and intuitive platform for quick modeling and simulation.
