Lumerical 2017b Enables Simulation of Nano- to Macro-Scale Optical Effects with Zemax® OpticStudio™ Interoperability

The combination of tools provides an ideal solution for designers to quickly and efficiently model the optical effects of these innovative new technologies. The result is first to market advantage for our customers.

Lumerical (http://www.lumerical.com) announced today the availability of the 2017b release for its photonic simulation tools FDTD Solutions, MODE Solutions, and INTERCONNECT. Highlights of Lumerical’s 2017b release include: a new Stack Optical Solver available in FDTD Solutions and MODE Solutions; advanced models for INTERCONNECT; and interoperability with Zemax®’s OpticStudio™.

The 2017b release introduces interoperability functions between Lumerical’s photonic simulation tools and Zemax OpticStudio. This automates sharing of optical simulation data between Lumerical and Zemax simulators, eliminating manual file conversions and accelerating simulation time and accuracy for applications that require both nano- and macro-scale optics.

“We are excited to be working with Lumerical on the integration of Zemax’s OpticStudio and Lumerical’s photonic solvers. Emerging applications in wearable optics, display, metamaterials, and integrated optics are combining nano-scale and visible-scale optical effects to deliver amazing visual experiences,” stated Dr. Mark Nicholson, Chief Executive Officer at Zemax. “The combination of tools provides an ideal solution for designers to quickly and efficiently model the optical effects of these innovative new technologies. The result is first to market advantage for our customers.”

Lumerical and Zemax jointly present a webinar series focusing on the new Zemax-Lumerical interoperability through lens-to-fiber coupling, OLEDs, and diffractive/metalenses. Part I of “From Nano-scale to…
