Logan Optical Designs, LLC

Logan Optical Designs (LOD) is a custom optical design consulting company with over 20 years experience in lens design, modeling and analyses of any optical system from single element optical designs to complex multi-element imaging lens designs.  LOD uses Zemax optical design code, which is capable of geometrical ray analysis, CAD importation and scattering analyses and physical optics propagation.  LOD started by Dr. Logan DesAutels in 2004 and has been using Zemax/Code V since 1995.  Some examples of LOD designs are given below or by clicking on the Designs tab.  .

LOD will develop any optical system to meet your specifications with a current product or prototype under development.

LOD will work closely with clients on all project issues including opto-mechanical, vendor selection, and procurement.  We will provide a timely response to enable our customers to meet project deadlines.

LOD areas of expertise are shown below:

       1. High power LED modeling and simulation; including electric circuit design.
       2. Laser diode modeling and simulation.
       3. High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamp reflector design.
       4. Astromonical telescopes.
       5. Zoom telescopes.
       6. Wide Angle (WA) lens design.
