  • OSLO Optical System Setup

OSLO allows you great flexibility in setting up an optical system for optimization, analysis, or tolerancing.

  • Environmental temperature, pressure
  • Variety of solves and pickups for curvature and thickness specifications
  • Aperture Specification:
    • Variety of solves and pickups
    • Optional aperture checking
    • Variety of aperture shapes. Complex apertures can be built from combinations of transmitting/obstructing ellipses/triangles/quadrangles. Limit of 2 special apertures per surface in Standard Edition.
  • Complete glass specification:
    • Variety of glass models, parameters (dn/dT, expansion coefficients, transmittance…) now searchable
    • Select from manufacturers’ glass catalogs, or define your own glasses
