OSLO (Optics Software for Layout and Optimization) is a powerful optical design program with the scope needed to meet today's optical design requirements. In addition to classical lens design features, OSLO combines advanced ray tracing, analysis, and optimization methods with a high speed macro language to solve a wide variety of new problems in optical design.
OSLO is primarily used in lens design to determine the optimal sizes and shapes of the components in optical systems. OSLO has the capability of modeling a wide range of reflective, refractive and diffractive components. In addition, OSLO is used to simulate and analyze the performance of optical systems. With OSLO's CCL programming language, you can develop specialized design and analysis software tools for modeling, testing, and manufacturing optical systems.
OSLO provides an integrated software environment that helps you complete almost any task in contemporary optical design. More than a lens design program, OSLO also provides advanced tools for designing medical instrumentation, illumination, aerospace and defense systems as well as telecommunications equipment.
OSLO was the first software to demonstrate that serious optical lens design could be carried out using desktop computers. Today, OSLO has been accepted as a standard tool by companies throughout the world that use it to create better, lower-cost designs and manufacture them more efficiently. But optical design today goes far beyond the range of problems handled in the past. Now, optical systems are integrated with electronics and image processing software creating new design alternatives. OSLO's technological leadership in optical design software is more valuable today than ever before.
OSLO optical design software is available in three levels called OSLO Premium , OSLO Standard and OSLO Light . The feature set in each edition is a subset of the features found in the next higher edition. Each edition is a full-featured program that can help you design superior systems. A free edition (OSLO-EDU) is available in the OSLO-EDU section but is limited to 10 surfaces.
OSLO works seamlessly with our TracePro software to provide a complete and comprehensive design environment.
