Our Engineering Services

Main focus

Software based development of optical and illumination systems from concept studies to the virtual prototype and beyond.
Analysis of optical systems, particularly stray light and light scattering analysis with ASAP and other tools.
Software development for optical instrumentation, for example sensor systems for light scattering.

Simuloptics GmbH builds on the year-long experience of the two physicists Dr. Bernhard Michel and Eberhard Lange. In combination with the almost universial applicability of optical software this experience is reflected in a rich variety of optical engineering tasks accomplished in the last years. Here is a selection:
