What is Optical? Light Simulation

ANSYS SPEOS lets you see optical simulation in a new light

Experience light simulation for optical system optimization and validation within a multiphysics environment. SPEOS offers:

  • An intuitive and comprehensive user interface.
  • Enhanced productivity with use of GPUs for simulation previews.
  • Easy access to the ANSYS multiphysics ecosystem.


Solve complex optical problems

ANSYS’ physics-based imaging, photonics and illumination software streamlines the design process, so you can better understand how your product will look and operate. Simulation lets you assess your product virtually to see how it will appear in real-world lighting and usage conditions. For example, you can virtually assess the performance of a smart automotive headlight in dynamic driving conditions using optical simulations instead of wasting time building and testing costly physical prototypes. Whether you are designing a TV screen, a street lighting network, a smart headlight, a head-up display or the interior mood lighting in an automobile, ANSYS optical simulation software helps you make your design more efficient and appealing.

Visual appearance for perceived quality

When customers evaluate your products, the overall look and details can make the difference. ANSYS optical software lets you simulate light interactions with materials so you can see how your product will appear in real-world conditions. Create the best “visual signature” for your product using simulation to see “eye to eye” with your customers.

Optical sensors for autonomous vehicles

Optical sensors are the eyes of any intelligent system. ANSYS physics-based simulations can help you assess raw signals from camera and lidar systems in their operating environments. You can post-process the simulated data to optimize sensor layout on vehicles in dynamic driving conditions.

  • I would like to hereby express my vote of confidence in Qfinsoft, in their ability to service and provide a strong support to us as a company.  We have been a customer of Qfinsoft for over a year and I am pleased to compliment them on their impeccable service offered to us thus far

  • Since the introduction of ANSYS, more students are using first principles and FEA to validate their designs. This year, more than 60% of the projects were using FEA as a standard approach for numerical calculation. This number shows the huge impact ANSYS, had on University of Pretoria. FEA is not anymore a specialised tool for few users but a standard engineering tool easily integrated in the design process.

  • At Aerospace, we have successfully used the ANSYS suite of tools to design high-performance gas turbine engines. Throughout this program, Qfinsoft provided valuable support and assistance to accelerate the development of our models. Their accessibility, short-turn around times and willingness to go beyond what is expected make them an effective partner on our projects.
