FRED v10.100 Released!
FRED v10.100 is officially released! A few of the exciting new features added in this release are described below:
Detector entities are a new type of analysis surface which are capable of performing analyses dynamically during the raytrace and can be created as planes, spheres, cylinders and cones. Detector entities can be instructed to collect rays either during the trace (as rays intersect them), immediately after the trace, or upon request, giving the user the ability to perform analyses in multiple optical spaces with a single raytrace. This implementation only supports incoherent irradiance, illuminance and color image analyses.
Four new “Lens Module” surface types simulate the effects of an ideal spherical surface, finite conjugate lens, infinite conjugate lens or afocal lens.
Simplified Laser Diode Beam
An alternate simplified source for modeling astigmatic gaussian laser beams has been added which uses a new algorithm for source creation and improves accuracy over a broader range of divergence angles.
