This week, we will continue our discussion of fast steering mirrors. If you missed our last article, go ahead and read about steering mirrors for laser marking. Here, we will discuss the design requirements for steering mirrors in Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)....
When is a Risley Prism the best solution?
by Victor Argueta | Apr 15, 2021 | FAQ, optical design, opto-mechanical design
Previous posts have explained reflective, anamorphic and dispersive prisms and their use in optical systems. Today we will explain a prism configuration called Risley Prism. A Risley prism is actually two wedge prisms close to each other that can be...
Benefits of Multiphysics Design
by Victor Argueta | Nov 18, 2020 | mechanical design, optical design, opto-mechanical design, Zemax
Simulating any optical system in Zemax is a fundamental part of our optical design process. Among many reasons, we simulate in Zemax so we can evaluate the optical performance, whether in terms of aberrations for imaging systems or power efficiency for...
