Lambda Research Announces 67 Additions and Improvements With TracePro 3.3.5


Lambda Research Corporation, developer of optical software TracePro and OSLOĆ, announces the latest release of its illumination design software, TracePro.

TracePro now provides the functionality to handle anisotropic grating structures. When maximizing or minimizing grating efficiencies and dispersion, an optical designer is now able to simulate gratings energy efficiencies at various azimuth angles. This allows the designer to accurately determine the flux levels for each order at each incident angle of the light striking the grating. TracePro’s ability to simulate and analyze complicated optical grating structures (commonly used in spectroscopy, medical devices and lithography) is greatly enhanced.

Additionally, TracePro’s RepTile properties benefit from a large number of enhancements including the addition of new diagnostics insuring better geometry, placement and on-screen display. The absolute value function was also added to all evaluator controls and parameterized RepTile input definitions.
