For an effective functioning of LightWaves01 the high capacity graphic card is needed. It is important because the software uses the graphic card (or GPU  - Graphic Processing Unit) for the parallel data processing. The minimal needed computer configuration is  ….

LightWaves01 can be started from the usual optic design Software, familiar for the optic specialists. You can create your optic system with the standard optic design software you are already using.  As the output you will get the wave equation approach of laser light propagation through the optic system. However the parallel data processing will get you results at least 900 times faster as a usual one core processor computation.

 This Software was initially developed not for the optic designers, but for the using in the quality inline inspection for the daily optic production. The calculation algorithms was proven to give the correct results in concern with diffraction and interferential effects on thousands real measurements of the laser light propagation in very different optical systems.
