Optics Software for Layout and Optimization (OSLO)

Definition - What does Optics Software for Layout and Optimization (OSLO) mean?

Optics Software for Layout and Optimization (OSLO) is a lens design program that can be used to determine the optimal sizes and shapes of components in an optical system. OSLO has other applications in optical design as well.

Techopedia explains Optics Software for Layout and Optimization (OSLO)

Using methods such as ray tracing, analysis and optimization, OSLO helps designers understand optical design better. Modeling tools and a programming language called CCL allow OSLO to be applied to diverse kinds of systems. These include highly technical and conceptual projects such as those that deal with "quantum optics" or the application of light to sophisticated theoretical physics.

OSLO was developed in the 1970s and still provides support for modern projects, such as those featuring integration with electronics and image processing software.
