CODE V 10.4 delivers enhancements to its Beam Synthesis Propagation (BSP) tool that enable optical designers to model and analyze diffraction effects in an optical system with increased flexibility, speed and accuracy. In addition, the Glass Expert tool is now fully integrated into CODE V. This makes glass selection easier and faster.

BSP General Complex Field Input
CODE V 10.4 adds support for general complex field input to BSP. This gives users flexibility to customize the input beam (light source) description by providing detailed maps of the beam’s intensity and phase. For example, complex optical field data can be imported from external software programs that model waveguides for photonic devices. This feature also allows the definition and propagation of higher-order laser modes.
BSP Birefringent Crystal Modeling
BSP has been extended to model extraordinary ray propagation through uniaxial, birefringent crystals. This enhances BSP’s ability to accurately model beam propagation through devices that manipulate the polarization of light, including optical telecommunication devices and lithography lenses.
BSP Pre-Analysis Enhancements
The BSP pre-analysis feature, which determines recommended sampling, resampling and other BSP analysis settings based on the user’s lens system configuration and required output, is now more robust when used with systems with a Gaussian input field followed by small collimation elements, a common configuration in many optical telecommunication devices.
BSP Multiprocessor Support
BSP now takes advantage of parallel processing on multi-core architecture CPUs, enabling designers to obtain BSP analysis results in a fraction of the time needed using a single processor.
Glass Expert Tool
Now fully integrated into CODE V, the Glass Expert tool uses a unique algorithm to find the best set of real glasses for a user’s lens design that provides superior color correction (including the generation of apochromatic systems) while considering factors such as glass transmission, cost, weight and other criteria. The result is a practical final set of glasses that eliminates the need for time-intensive glass selection.
