Optics python module opticspy

Opticspy is a python module for optics application. I want this for a long time. One reason is I know both optics and python, so why no develop some optics tools? The second reason is that there is not much opensource, easy-to-use optics program module(matlab has great fuctions but do not specify to optics application). I want this could be developed in to a core for a future web application for optics.

Followings are primary opticspy modules:

1. Real ray tracing and Lens Design:

2. Zernike Polynomial Methods

3. Interferometer and Testing Methods

4. Wave Propagation and Aberration Methods

5. Lens aberration, Jones matrix and gauss beam methods

There are some interesting derivative from opticspy:

1. A Zernike Polynomial GUI app based on opticspy and PyQt5

It is very easy to reuse or “wrap” opticspy module with a GUI(e.g. PyQt)

2. Zernike Surface gif show

This is the Opticspy project page

This project is hosted on github in https://github.com/Sterncat/opticspy

Installing

Use pip install (recommend)

$ pip install opticspy

Or download here

$ python2.7 setup.py install

Some trouble shooting please read troubleshooting.md

How to use

>>> import opticspy

And just have fun with it!

What I want

  • 1. After import the module and you will get some functions that can do some calculation and education in optics
  • 2. Parameters should be very flexible, and the results should be shown in visualized, intuitionistic figures.
  • 3. After development of core, I want it be dynamic web application(with Javascript)
  • 4. I even hope one day it will become a part of online optics design application, who knows?

TODO:
