24 October 1984 Optical Analysis Software As An Application For Three-Dimensional Display
Author Affiliations +
Presented is a discussion of the potential value of three-dimensional displays augmenting optical design software. Specifically, we discuss physical optics modeling methods and a configuration-based approach, which allows users to view the optical system in a three-dimensional projection. This approach utilizes elementary ray-trace capabilities used in providing geometric beam data to the physical optics part of the code. A global three-dimensional coordinate system provides a framework in which to locate components, and compute beam intercepts with the components in the optical systems.
