Input surface map (Surface Sag) to ZEMAX

Hi all,


I am currently doing an optics project with some mechanical simulations.


We are trying to simulate the surface deformation with mechanical design software.


Then input the data to ZEMAX.


If I have a sag data like the attached,


could I input these data to get the surface in ZEMAX? Including radius of curvature and aspherical coefficients.


Thank you,


Raymond

You can use Grid Sag surface to import data.

Hi Raymond,


Andrey is correct - the Grid Sag will let you input that data directly into OpticStudio as a surface. I have written a series of Knowledgebase articles about the Grid Sag surface. I think you will find the first two articles helpful:



Let us know if you have any other questions about this!


Best,
