Import and Export between Optiwave and Zemax [FDTD] [Beam Propagation Method]

Question:

I am using Zemax software to simulate parts of my device with ray tracing techniques, however part of the simulation domain needs to be simulated with a different approach. Can I take data from the Zemax software and import it into Optiwave software?

      Answer:

      Yes. You can import and export field data from Zemax into OptiFDTD or OptiBPM. This was made possible by a collaborative effort between both companies.

      Take a look at a YouTube video we posted on the subject:

        This functionality is coming soon to OptiFDTD and OptiBPM, in the next minor release!
