This optical system design experience is backed up by extensive knowledge of the industry standard software design tools of CodeV and Zemax.
Stray light analysis is a vitally important area of optical system design that is often overlooked. These problem areas in optical systems which have been analysed include: ghost reflections, particulate scatter, surface roughness, baffle design, thermal self emission and long wave diffraction effects. Although we use ASAP & APART extensively we also have developed our own in-house software tools which includes an accurate beam envelope generator which is available as a bolt-on for CodeV, Zemax and CAD packages.
We have a wide range of facilities and tools available for all aspects of optical instrument assembly and testing:
- Interferometers - WYKO6000 and a 4D-Phasecam
- Autocollimators and alignment telescopes
- Optikos MTF testing (300m diameter beam)
- Access to SSTD's clean rooms and environmental testing facilities
