Sequential Ray-Tracing Analysis
Zemax has the most comprehensive suite of analysis tools in the industry. The standard diagnostic plots such as aberration fans, MTF response, spot diagrams, point spread function and many other features are all included. In addition, Zemax can generate analysis plots of virtually any data as a function of any parameter of interest.
Zemax also supports zoom systems, environmental and thermal analysis, diffractive as well as refractive and reflective components, sequential or non-sequential elements, birefringent media, and arbitrary gradient index optics in any combination.
Best of all, Zemax has tools to make the hardest jobs simpler: there are tools for tilting and decentering elements, following the chief ray automatically after prisms and gratings, making sub-systems out of larger systems, tolerancing assembly procedures, cross-column pick-up solves and much more.
