   Product Details

ZEMAX-EE contains all the features and capabilities of ZEMAX-SE, plus the following additional capabilities:

Sequential Surfaces

ZEMAX-EE supports the following additional surfaces:

Type Description
Birefringent Surface Models uniaxial crystal polarization components
Jones Matrix Models idealized polarization components
Non-sequential components  Allows non-sequential objects and ray-tracing to be used in an otherwise sequential  system. Ideal for prism modeling or incorporating CAD objects inside a sequential ray trace model
NURBS Radial and Toroidal NURBS surfaces for freeform optical design 
Optically Fabricated Hologram  Comprehensive modeling of optically fabricated holograms, in which two separate optical systems illuminate a common variable-line-space grating, which is then read out by a third optical system. Allows simultaneous optimization and tolerancing of the construction and playback opticla systems. 
User-defined surfaces 

A powerful capability to write surfaces that are not built-into ZEMAX. Several samples are provided, as examples of how to write such surfaces, and these can also be used just like a built-in surface. The supplied user-defined surfaces include:

Lens Arrays (rotationally symmetric and cylinder lenses)
Filter surfaces to modulate a surface's transmission
Gradient Index surfaces

Polarization Ray-Tracing

Polarization Analysis Polarization state evolution
Polarization ellipse pupil map
System transmission
Thin-Film Coating reflection, transmission, absorption , phase, retardance and diattenuation
Polarization aberrations
System transmission fans
Optimization operands
Thin-film coatings Defined by coating prescription
Dielectric and metallic coatings and layers
Replicated stacks of coatings
Automatic reversal of coating layer order at air/glass, glass/air interfaces
Defined by table of performance
IDEAL coating for simple listing of coating performance

Polygonal objects defined by data file
Objects can be imported from CAD programs in IGES, STEP, SAT, or STL format
User-defined objects via dll interface

ZEMAX-EE includes a large library of predefined prisms. These objects may be scaled to any size, then placed anywhere. Most common prisms, such as right, dove, roof, penta, pechan, and many others are included.      

Objects may be multiply nested, or in contact (glued), or straddle
Media may be arbitrary glass, gradient index, absorbing, reflecting, scattering, or diffracting
Thin film coatings may be placed on any face of any object, or between any objects

Geometry Creation Geometric Objects may be transformed with Boolean operations, made into arrays of objects, or swept about arbitrary points
Gradient Index Any solid volume may be GRIN
GRIN media completely arbitrary, user definable
GRIN's may be nested inside other GRIN's or voids  
Diffractive Optics
