This course covers the basics on modeling, analyzing, optimizing, and tolerancing image-forming optical systems using CODE V, including hands-on workshops.

It assumes familiarity with optics concepts and terminology.

By the end of the week, you will be able to do the following:

  • Model an optical system given its design parameters
  • Evaluate the system to determine its performance
  • Optimize the system to improve its quality
  • Evaluate the manufacturability of the final design

Classes are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., except on the last day, when class ends at 4:30 p.m. Hands-on workshops are held throughout the day.

Attendees are required to bring their own laptop. For additional information, please see the CODE V hardware/operating system requirements.

It is highly recommended to have the CODE V software installed before attending the class. Please email codev_support@synopsys.com for help on setting up the laptop before the first day of class.
