In addition to such basic capabilities as lens modeling and spot diagrams, CODE V has a vast array of technical, graphical, and ease-of-use features. The following list of “key features” is just a small subset of what is available capabilities.
- Optimization (including Global Synthesis)
- Ease of use (GUI interface and commands)
- Extensive built-in libraries of optical system models (patents, etc.), components, and optical glass
- Extensive graphics (pictures, data plots, shaded displays), including 3D visualizations and diffraction-based image simulations
- Database/modeling Features
- Tolerancing (including extremely fast and accurate wavefront differential tolerancing)
- Interferogram interface (supports computer-aided closed-loop alignment)
- Non-sequential surface modeling for unusual systems
- Powerful command language (with Macro-PLUS programming)
- Fast 2D Image Simulation with an input bitmap file (including diffraction)
- The most accurate, efficient beam propagation analysis available
- CODE V is the most comprehensive “tool box” for optical modeling, design and analysis available today.
CODE V is the most comprehensive optical design and analysis program in the world. For more than thirty years, it has led the way with a long series of innovations. These include:
- Zoom/multi-configuration optimization and analysis
- Environmental/thermal analysis
- Fast wavefront differential tolerancing for MTF, RMS wavefront error, fiber coupling efficiency, polarization dependent loss, and Zernike wavefront coefficient performance metrics
- User-defined constraints in optimization
- Interferometric interface and optical alignment
- Non-sequential surface modeling
- Vector diffraction calculations including polarization
- Global Synthesis®, the first practical global optimization method for optical design
- And many more
CODE V also includes a powerful Macro-PLUS programming language, a flexible, user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI), and features for analysis of illumination in optical systems. As with all features of CODE V, these capabilities offer outstanding depth, generality, and applicability to real-world problems.
