Lambda Research has released OSLO v6.6.2, which contains significant updates and enhancements on previous versions.
OSLO (Optics Software for Layout and Optimisation) is a powerful optical design program with the scope needed to meet today's optical design requirements at an affordable price. In addition to classical lens design features, OSLO combines advanced ray tracing, analysis, and optimisation methods with a compiled macro language, to quickly solve a wide variety of new problems in optical design.
Release v6.6.2 consists of several updates and improvements: most notable is support for the Hikari index interpolation formula and an overhaul of the glass catalogues to reflect the latest data from CDGM, Hikari, Hoya, Ohara, Schott, and Sumita.
Primarily used for lens design, OSLO enables optical designers to determine the optimal sizes and shapes of the components in optical systems and is capable of modelling a wide range of reflective, refractive, and diffractive components.
All customers with a current maintenance and support subscription for OSLO are entitled and encouraged to download and install the release.
