TRACEPRO® 5.0 Delivers Enhanced Light Source Modeling

Lambda Research Corporation, a leading supplier of optical design software, announces TracePro 5.0, the latest release of its software for optical modeling, design and analysis.

TracePro 5.0 delivers a number of new powerful capabilities including enhanced light source modeling in TracePro, such as the ability for TracePro users to combine multiple light sources with various wavelength spectrums in one TracePro model and analyze numerous light source interactions in the same ray trace. Additionally, a user-defined, customized surface source database can be built in TracePro 5.0. For example, TracePro’s new surface source property editor allows TracePro user to specify light source behavior dependant on specific wavelength, temperature and emission angle. In addition, the user can now specify particular light source wavelengths to be traced for all source types (surface, grid and file sources) providing the designer with greater modeling flexibility. Fluorescence emission wavelengths can be now defined for each fluorescent object enabling more effective modeling and analyzing of fluorescent dyes with varying emission spectrums. These new features result in more efficient and flexible raytrace runs, saving designers’ time and efforts.  

Additionally, a stand-alone light source property wizard compatible with TracePro 5.0 enabling user to import light source properties such as wavelength spectrum and radiation patterns from manufacturer’s data sheets, has been added to TracePro 5.0 release. This wizard is downloadable from Lambda Research’s website for TracePro customers current on their M&S subscriptions. Finally, the TracePro 5.0 users will benefit from significant enhancements in the user interface for modeling light sources, improved flux report, reverse ray trace and luminance ray trace.
