Zemax, an Ansys company, is a leader in high-performance optical imaging system simulation. Ansys provides comprehensive, end-to-end solutions for simulating next-generation optical and photonics products, from photonics-enabled circuits to precision vision systems to system-level illumination that drive breakthroughs in healthcare, autonomy, consumer electronics, quantum computing and the industrial internet of things.
Modern products rely upon embedded optical systems for successful performance. Accurately imaging the physical world and predicting the performance of these imaging systems is critical in products as diverse as robotic surgery-assist systems, autonomous vehicles, machine vision cameras, and aerospace and defense applications. These products depend on precision optical raytracing and reliable lens design, yet imaging system creation is an intricate task complicated by strict requirements for precision, tolerancing, and manufacturability. Zemax provides users with unsurpassed precision and breadth in imaging simulation and optimization technologies.
With the addition of Zemax technologies, Ansys offers customers a comprehensive solution for simulating the behavior of light in complex, innovative products – ranging from the microscale with the Ansys Lumerical™ photonics products to imaging of the physical world with Zemax, to human vision perception with Ansys Speos™. This comprehensive solution enables users to create optimal designs more quickly by streamlining the workflow and communication among photonics, optical, mechanical, and manufacturing engineers.
