Introduction to Non-Sequential

Introduction to Non-Sequential

This course is an introduction to non-sequential mode and ray-tracing in that mode. It will cover how sources and detectors are defined along with some radiometry reminders.

About this course

This course includes the following content: 

  • Non Sequential Ray Tracing in OpticStudio
  • Quick introduction of the non sequential mode and object placement
  • Source Objects: how is a source defined? What are the common parameters for a source?
  • Detector Objects: how is a detector defined? What are the common parameters for a detector? Presentation of the different detectors available.
  • Illumination Units & Geometries: Quick reminder of photometry vocabulary and units
