Optical Device Simulation

Streamline Your Design Process, Solve Complex Optical Challenges

Optics and photonics play a crucial part in developing advanced, innovative products across industries. Physics-based photonics, illumination, and imaging give you insight into your products look and operation—by eliminating costly physical prototypes and testing, businesses can focus on enhancing product efficiency and visual appeal to meet customer demand. 

From your smartphone to satellites orbiting the earth, optics and photonics are transforming the world around us. Modern optical devices require a combination of nanoscale to microscale elements and must be designed for use in complex systems, and it’s only through the combination of Ansys Lumerical, Zemax, and Speos tools that engineers can create optical and photonic systems that meet today’s demanding requirements.
