Optics in virtual reality

The evaluation of optical systems determines how the product is perceived and even whether or not it can be used in the intended manner.

Optical simulation with Ansys across the entire product lifecycle

With the Ansys optics product portfolio, you can implement optical simulations for a great variety of applications, such as light guide optimization, luminaire development or UV disinfection. Whether for design, engineering, validation or visualization, each result is strictly physics-based and therefore highly realistic.

Ansys optics products at a glance

The challenges for simulation are as diverse as the applications in the field of optics and photonics.
Ansys covers this broad spectrum with leading solutions.

Photonics: Ansys Lumerical

Optical Design: Ansys Zemax OpticStudio

Macroscopic optics: Ansys Speos

Automotive VR: Ansys AVXelerate

Photonics takes the wave character of light into account. Quantum physics methods must also be used in the calculation of photonic phenomena. The Ansys Lumerical tools are precisely tailored to this type of simulation. They can be used, for example, to analyze the properties of coatings, lasers or optical fibers in detail.

Many optical systems must be able to represent reality in a visually perceptible way - think of lens systems, cameras and objectives. Their highly precise design is necessary to ensure proper alignment of the beam guidance and to comply with the respective technical specifications. This special technical discipline is called optical design and is implemented in Ansys Zemax OpticStudio.

Macroscopic optical simulation addresses the question of how the different phenomena of reflection, absorption, refraction and scattering interact in complex systems. It deals with luminosity, the uniformity of light distribution and the visualization of objects in terms of human perception. These are typical domains of the flagship tool.
