Superior Designs with CODE V Optimization

CODE V’s optimization is unmatched in the variety of systems it can handle efficiently, its superior results, and the speed with which it delivers these results.
Key optimization features
  • Unique, award-winning optimization algorithms that assure the quality of performance predictions
  • Global Synthesis® is a unique and efficient global optimization algorithm that typically works much faster than other approaches (such as genetic algorithms or simulated annealing), especially for real-world, complex lens systems. Use it to generate starting designs or confirm that the final design candidate is the best one.
  • An optional error function component that efficiently optimizes the as-built RMS wavefront error performance (i.e., the performance including the impact of fabrication and assembly errors, along with realistic tolerance compensation)
  • Glass Expert and Asphere Expert that automatically choose the best set of glasses and optimal asphere locations
  • Smart, engineering-based defaults that minimize setup time and maximize the quality of your optical solution
  • Parallel processing support for up to 16 cores, for both local and global optimization
  • RMS blur, wavefront variance, MTF, fiber coupling efficiency, and user-defined error functions
  • Effective exact constraint handling
  • Easy definition of user-defined constraints
  • Fast, accurate MTF optimization

Accuracy & Results

Errors in the design process can lead to missed schedules and extra costs, as unwanted redesigns are performed. It is critical for your optical modeling software to exceed the accuracy specifications that your own products must meet. CODE V utilizes the most accurate analysis algorithms available and has the quality assurance processes in place to maintain this accuracy.
Key analysis features
  • Intelligent, engineering-based defaults in all analysis capabilities
  • Generalized diffraction beam propagation. CODE V’s Beam Synthesis Propagation™ (BSP) sets an industry standard for accuracy, efficiency, and ease of use. 
  • Polarization ray tracing, including birefringent material modeling
  • Accurate calculations of system performance, including the input polarization state and system-induced polarization effects
  • Many diagnostic evaluation options, such as transverse ray aberration or OPD curves
  • Many geometrical and diffraction-based image evaluation options, such as spot diagrams and MTF
  • Non-sequential ray tracing
  • Partial coherence 1D and 2D image analysis
  • Fiber coupling efficiency analysis
  • Illumination analysis
  • Scanning infrared narcissus analysis
