|Asphere Design in CODE V |
Full support in CODE V for aspheric surfaces based on mathematical formulations published by Dr. G.W. Forbes of QED Technologies enables superior design optimization and tolerancing.
|CODE V Beam Synthesis Propagation |
The CODE V Beam Synthesis Propagation (BSP) feature allows you to accurately analyze optical systems
containing complex diffraction characteristics.
|CODE V Image Simulation |
With CODE V Image Simulation, you obtain fast, accurate visual assessments of system image quality, including diffraction.
|ERCO Success Story |
ERCO specializes in producing engineering hardware and software for architectural lighting. Needing to
create a reflector design that would allow easy and flexible adaptations to be made to a variety of
architectural lighting applications, they turned to LightTools. LightTools was used to create the
innovative Spherolit reflectors, which are distinguished by their 3D spherical curvature that can be
shaped for specific light distributions.
|LightTools Features and Benefits for LED Design |
LightTools delivers ease of use, fast and flexible ray tracing, a fully featured optical and mechanical
design environment, and expert technical support.
