Lambda Research Corporation Announces the Release of OSLO v6.6.2

Lambda Research Corporation, the leading designer and publisher of illumination and optical design software, announces the latest release of OSLO – v6.6.2 – which contains significant updates and enhancements.

OSLO (Optics Software for Layout and Optimization) 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 optimization methods with the only compiled macro language in an optical design program, 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 catalogs 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 modeling 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 this latest release here: http://secure.lambdares.com/technical_support/oslo/releases/.
