Synopsys - Industrial Affiliates Partner Info-Session

    Tuesday, April 14, 2020 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

    Synopsys, an Industrial Affiliates partner, is hosting a virtual Info-Session on April 14 at 12 p.m. Please join us to learn more about "Synopsys Optical and Photonics Solutions Groups, 57 Years of Innovation in the Simulation of Light" from Dr. Jake Jacobsen.  


    Optical Research Associates started in 1963 with a crazy idea that you could, maybe, trace rays faster and better with computers than doing it by hand with slide rules. What followed was 57 years of innovation in the simulation of light. Today we are the Synopsys Optical and Photonics Solutions Groups, makers of CODE V, LightTools, LucidShape, RSoft and OptoDesigner software. This talk will give an overview of the company and its products. We also hope to provide some insight into what it’s like to serve the optics community at Synopsys.

    Dr. Jake Jacobsen graduated from the Optical Sciences Center in 1997 and has since worked at Nikon, Tinsley Laboratories and Agere Systems. He joined Optical Research Associates in 2001 and is currently the Technical Marketing Manager for the Optical Solutions Group.
