KIRKLAND, Washington – October 18, 2016 – Zemax announces the latest version of its optical and illumination design software, OpticStudio. OpticStudio 16.5 includes new features to tackle stray light and photoluminescence, and also usability improvements that make OpticStudio faster and easier to use.
- Analyze stray light using the industry’s best ray tracing engine (Professional and Premium editions) – OpticStudio 16.5 adds new stray light analysis tools to identify and block unwanted rays in your optical systems. These new tools streamline stray light analyses to deliver consistent and accurate results faster.
