What is Quadoa® Optical CAD?

Quadoa® Optical CAD is the first sequential and multi-sequential optical design software for the complete prototyping process of optical systems.
With the main focus on optical simulation, analysis, optimization and tolerancing, Quadoa®'s next-generation optical design software features a wide range of comprehensive optical design capabilities.

Key Benefits

Quadoa® Optical CAD is the perfect tool for simulating, optimizing, and analyzing a wide range of optical systems. It helps customers reduce development times and tackle even highly complex design tasks. By offering various physical methods, such as polarization raytracing and wave optical propagation, it provides the ideal method for any application. Its object-based architecture is a real game changer for working on off-axis systems, and its highly flexible modular approach allows defining almost any optical surface or element, including the optimization of aspheres, freeform surfaces, diffractive optics, GRIN lenses, and more. Additionally, it supports ghost and tolerance analysis, including the simulation of local surface defects or material inhomogeneities.
Powerful optimization algorithms allow to optimize any parameters of the optical system in order to find a solution for even the most complex design problems.
Multi-sequential raytracing opens up a new range of design options and analysis features.
Physical Methods: Besides classical Raytracing Quadoa® fully supports Polarization Raytracing as well as Wave Optical Propagation.
Simulation capabilities: A nearly unlimited range of surface types including Aspheres, Free-Form surfaces, Arrays, Phase functions, local surface defects as well as Birefringent materials, GRIN lenses or material inhomogenities can be simulated.
Object-based approach enables a modular arrangement of lenses and assemblies.
Full bi-directional compatibility with mechanical CAD software enhances the opto-mechanical development in a new way.
