Conference Overview

The International Optical Design Conference (IODC) is held every four years and gathers optical designers, scientists, and engineers from around the world to discuss the latest developments in the optical design industry.  The conference covers topics ranging from freeform optics and imaging design to illumination systems design and emerging optics technologies.

Synopsys Demos

At IODC, the Synopsys Optical Solutions Group will showcase our software solutions that enable you to design accurate, easy-to-manufacture optical systems. Speak with our experts to learn more about our innovative software packages including CODE V® imaging design software, LightTools® illumination design software, and RSoft™ Photonic Device Tools for streamlined, multi-domain co-simulations of nano-textured optical structures. We offer optical design services, with more than 5,500 completed projects in imaging, illumination, and optical systems engineering. And our optical measurement solutions give customers access to precision light scattering data for materials and media used in optical systems.
