You can make dynamic interactive Mathematica Player demonstrations using Optica3 and Mathmeatica6/7!
LensLab is our entry level optical design, lens design, optical raytracing package.
Optica 3 performs geometric, nonsequential, polarization
ray-trace calculations of optical systems in three-dimensional
space. It is great for complex lens design and lightsource illumination design.
Optica 3 builds on the functionality of
Mathematica to calculate wavefront interference
and diffraction, Gaussian beam propagation, ABCD matrix
models, and analytic representations of optical systems. Enables real-time control and optimization of your optical system component parameters with Mathematica 6/7 sliders, locator buttons and input fields.
