Optica Interactive Examples

This ray-trace animation shows how white light refracts through a diamond solitaire crystal. Due to the high refractive index of diamond, the light bounces many times within the crystal and creates a colorful display when it refracts back out.

Welcome Macintosh users!

Our software tools allow scientists and engineers to flexibly specify novel and innovative optical systems for both project development and conceptual validation purposes.

You can make dynamic interactive Mathematica Player demonstrations using Optica and Mathmeatica

LensLab is our entry level optical design, lens design, optical raytracing package.

Optica 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 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.
