an Open Source of Light

What's Optilux?

Optilux is an open source collection of tools that provide advanced techniques to design, simulate, and analyze optical communication systems. Optilux is implemented as a Matlab/Octave toolbox and efficiently exploits the MEX interface to speed up computation.
The toolbox includes routines to describe and analyze many aspects of optical systems, including:

Why using Optilux?

There are a number of reason you should use Optilux for your simulations:

With Optilux you can get the results of your research into a wider use. The whole toolbox is composed of free software that offers you complete control over your simulations. Nonetheless, everyone has the freedom to copy, redistribute, understand, and modify the code, with the opportunity to join an open source community where it is easier to find support, solutions and new ideas.
