“CODE V is an incredibly helpful tool for designing professional, high-end optics.The optimization routines are unbeatable, especially for our complex lenses with many individual optical elements.Furthermore, the solutions with CODE V’s Global Synthesis optimization lead to high-performance systems.CODE V is one of the enabling technologies that allows NWS instruments to offer imaging tools for experts.”

--Dr.Christoph Horneber, Co-Founder and Director of Optical Design, NWS Instruments AG

“CODE V’s CAD visualization feature has proven to be a useful tool for viewing multiple subsystems simultaneously, as well as for comparing my current optical layout to that of a previous revision.It has allowed me to visualize the system throughout the design process before exporting the final optical model to CAD software.I have also used the feature to import CAD models for catalog optical mounting components, making it possible to efficiently refine a compact optical layout while avoiding interferences between mounts.”

--Dr.Anthony Vella, Optical Engineer, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

“As an optical design and engineering firm that specializes in custom precision systems, we are continuously challenged with new and demanding projects.We appreciate new features in CODE V that help us analyze, optimize, and tolerance optical systems to get into production quickly.The View Apertures (VAP) feature has been helpful in analyzing non-rotationally symmetric systems with complex apertures in both imaging and beam shaping.VAP has also been very helpful for communications between our optics and mechanics teams, as well as with our customers and suppliers.”

CODE V is essential for our lens design work at Nikon Research Corporation of America.We often require extraordinary correction with many surfaces, and several very high-order aspheres, resulting in too many variables for typical lens design optimization.CODE V’s optimization tools, such as Global Synthesis and Glass Expert, make it possible to successfully design such systems."

“TheCODE V图像模拟功能provides a convenient method for evaluating optical systems that are used in unconventional imaging environments, such as automotive surround, 3D (stereo) imaging or hyper-hemispheric imaging.We have used these tools to develop hyper-hemispheric designs and have found them to be effective in evaluating synthetic target imagery.Rather than relying on MTF and PSF plots, the diffraction-based Image Simulation helps bridge the gap between perception and engineering metrics for our clients."
