The Basics of Ray Optics

In this brief webinar recording, you will get an introduction to the Ray Optics Module, an add-on product to the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, and learn about the basics of modeling ray optics. We show several examples of lens systems that you can model using the Ray Optics Module, and then demonstrate how to build a model of a petzval lens system. In our demonstration, we provide a detailed overview of the model and highlight the essential steps in the modeling workflow for simulating this device. Other examples of ray optics models can be found and downloaded from the Application Gallery.

This webinar is relevant to recently released versions of COMSOL Multiphysics®, although you may notice small differences between versions.
