TracePro Winter Training – February 5 – 7th, 2020 – Cologne, Germany

This three-day course, with three separate sessions, provides detailed introductory and advanced uses of TracePro for engineers and scientists who wish to model and analyze the interaction of light with optomechanical systems.

Featured Session: Day 3

  • Introduction to the TracePro Interactive Optimizer
  • Principles of optimization
  • Creating geometry in the optimizer
  • Defining variables
  • Defining optimization operands or goals

This course introduces students to the Interactive Optimizer in TracePro. We will discuss the theory and operation of the optimizer in TracePro. We will also cover setting up an optimization as well as the parameters necessary for this process. Numerous examples will be used throughout the day, including lenses, reflectors, and light guides. After this course, students will have a good working knowledge of the optimizer and be able to apply it to their own applications and problems. TracePro 101 or a good working knowledge of TracePro should be considered a prerequisite for this course.
