About This Webinar
Tune into this webinar to learn about optical ray tracing using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software.

This presentation includes a live demo in the software. The demo shows how to create a fully parameterized geometry of a typical lens system, trace rays through the system, and post-process the results. The presenter also elaborates on more specialized ray features, such as the analysis of ray intensity and polarization. Finally, they explain how the Ray Optics Module, an add-on product to COMSOL Multiphysics®, can be combined with structural and thermal simulation for highly accurate structural-thermal-optical performance (STOP) analysis.

Questions will be taken throughout the webinar and at the end during a live Q&A session.
