Ansys continues to push the innovation envelope to deliver accurate, high-performance optical design and simulation capabilities for optical designers.
Speed up design and improve accuracy with the latest Ansys Speos release. The 2022 R2 release delivers powerful capabilities that speed time to result, improve simulation accuracy, and expand interoperability with other Ansys products. Link more powerfully with CAD data thanks to a bi-directional link that eases the end user's workflow by shortening the design iteration cycle. When a user modifies parameters in the Speos UI, the updates will automatically occur in CAD and to the design in Speos, keeping all links to Speos features. Other productivity enhancements in this release including Light Field simulation and compatibility, better meshing control with geometries meshed proportionally to each face’s size, easier Stray Light Analysis and hot spot detection, and Labs enhancement allowing immediate access to key optical metrics.
2022 R2 brings the launch of Ansys Zemax OpticStudio which provides everything you need to simulate, optimize, and tolerance your optical designs. Design high-confidence virtual prototypes that you can thoroughly analyse before manufacturing.
With Ansys Zemax OpticsBuilder design exceptional products more efficiently and deliver them to manufacturing with confidence. Empower engineers to work together on a single, shared file across optical and mechanical teams. Analyze the performance of optomechanical packaging and create optical drawings with a single click.
The 2022 R2 release of Ansys Lumerical introduces a series of powerful new capabilities to extend usability, accuracy, performance, and functionality across its family of products. These new features enhance modeling capabilities for electro-optical devices, from SPADs to microLEDs and lasers, and empower photonic integrated circuit (PIC) designers with new capabilities for process-aware design and electronic-photonic design automation (EPDA). Several improvements for integrated flows with Zemax and Speos further streamline modeling of nanoscale to macroscale optics for augmented reality, metalens design, and imaging systems.
