OpticalRayTracer analyzes systems of lenses. It uses optical principles and a virtual optical bench to predict the behavior of many kinds of ordinary and exotic lens types. It includes an easy-to-use interface that allows the user to rearrange the optical configuration by simply dragging lenses around using the mouse. It fully analyzes lens optical properties, including refraction and dispersion. The dispersion display uses color-coded light beams to simplify interpretation of the results.
