TracePro is a comprehensive, versatile software tool for modeling the propagation of light in imaging and non-imaging opto-mechanical systems. Models are created by importing from a lens design program or a Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) program or by directly creating the solid geometry in TracePro. Optical properties are assigned to materials and surfaces in the model. Source rays propagate through the model with portions of the flux of each ray allocated for absorption, specular reflection and transmission, fluorescence and scatter. From the model, ray trace, and analyze:
- Light distributions in illumination and imaging systems - Stray light, scattered light and aperture diffraction - Throughput, loss, or system transmittance - Flux or power absorbed by surfaces and bulk media - Light scattering in biological tissue - Polarization effects - Fluorescence effects - Birefringence effects
TracePro features a simple, intuitive interface, and short learning curve that is both powerful and user-friendly for engineers and scientists of all disciplines.
