“The Future of Optical Design”

The spin-off company from the Femto-Nano laboratory at Tel Aviv University 3DOptix, founded in 2017, has launched a free, cloud-based optical design and simulation platform into private beta testing. No software installation is needed – the application runs on a standard browser.

The platform provides remote access to a virtual lab with optomechanics, lasers and detectors. Both professionals and students can run an optical simulation with off-the-shelf optical components from leading vendors or any customized optical elements. The optical design and simulation platform was developed from a deep need to reduce the multiple trial and error iteration in the lab among scientists, researchers and engineers in the optics community.

Currently, the beta platform has about one thousand users, more than 20,000 optical elements from 15 different vendors are available in the database and off-the-shelf optomechanics with built-in mechanical functionalities. All products are ready for simulation and mounting. Once the optical design has gone through the simulation phase, the implementation in the lab becomes straightforward and easy with a simulated optomechanical blueprint. Additionally, users can generate 2D sketches for an article or a paper directly from the platform.

“3DOptix is changing the way scientists, researchers, and engineers design and simulate the implementation of optical prototypes and setups. We are very excited to bring an innovative cloud platform with enhanced simulation features combined with accessibility and ease of use. Our users can run a complete optical simulation in a short time and share the design with their friends and colleagues, and make smart procurement decision before they go into the lab,“ says Gil Noy, 3DOptix’ CEO.

3DOptix is open for beta testing. Please apply by sending an email to info@3doptix.com or visit the website at design.3doptix.com and register.

“In the next 12 months, we are going to launch premium simulation modules. Those modules will not be free,“ Gil explains and continues: “Right now it is a free cloud-based system but the simulation itself is done in the end-user computer. Users can save their work locally on their own computer or in our cloud environment. In the future, we might develop an enterprise version with enhanced security functions.“ (Source: 3DOptix, G.
