Dave Jacobsen highlights new features of TracePro 2022!

Dave Jacobsen, Sr. Application Engineer at Lambda Research Corporation, discusses new features of TracePro 2022 at Photonics West in San Francisco. TracePro combines Monte Carlo ray tracing, analysis, CAD import/export, and optimization methods with a complete and robust macro language to solve a wide variety of problems in illumination design and optical analysis.




TracePro’s ray tracing engine is fast and accurate. Exact ray tracing to all surfaces even imported splines ‒ no missed intersections or “leaky” rays. Analysis Mode ray tracing, unique to TracePro, is a very powerful capability that creates an interactive environment. With Analysis Mode you can analyze every surface and object both visually and quantitatively. Thousands of pre-existing properties have been developed and can be applied to a TracePro model. Properties include: materials (optical glass, plastic, infrared materials), surface properties, bulk scatter and fluorescence.
