The Application Gallery features COMSOL Multiphysics® tutorial and demo app files pertinent to the electrical, structural, acoustics, fluid, heat, and chemical disciplines. You can use these examples as a starting point for your own simulation work by downloading the tutorial model or demo app file and its accompanying instructions.
Search for tutorials and apps relevant to your area of expertise via the Quick Search feature. To download the MPH-files, log in or create a COMSOL Access account that is associated with a valid COMSOL license. Note that many of the examples featured here can also be accessed via the Application Libraries that are built into the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and available from the File menu.
This example demonstrates how to import a bitmap which can be used to simulate an image using ray tracing. The example is based on the Double Gauss Lens tutorial from the Ray Optics Module Application Library. The first study has been modified so that the Spot Diagram "auto-focus" tool ... Read More
The Keck Telescope is a 10 meter diameter telescope with a Ritchey-Chretien optical design. It is noted for being one of the first large optical telescopes to utilize a lightweight segmented primary mirror. This tutorial demonstrates how to use built-in polygonal mirrors from the COMSOL ...

A corner cube retroreflector can be used to reflect rays in a direction exactly antiparallel to their initial direction, regardless of the angle of incidence. This tutorial shows how to simulate the reflection of a bundle of rays at a corner cube retroreflector using the Geometrical ... Read More
The Gregory-Maksutov telescope is a simple catadioptric telescope comprising a spherical corrector lens and a spherical primary mirror. In this example the corrector lens and mirror are formed using the 'Spherical Lens 3D' and 'Spherical Mirror 3D' parts respectively from the Ray Optics ... Read More
This model and tutorial demonstrates the use of an Application Method to compute and plot the geometric Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) for the Petzval Lens. Read More
