Airy Optics is an Arizona corporation founded to drive the utilization of polarization in optical design in ways that are at once both innovative and highly accessible to product development for commercial, industrial, defense, and research applications. Historically, polarization has been treated as a secondary concern by major optical modeling and analysis tools, often incompletely supported or lacking fidelity. Lack of comprehensive polarization modeling tools long slowed or prevented the realization of products based on polarization. Airy Optics has the answer: a next-generation optical modeling engine built from the ground up with polarization at its core. Based on technology developed with the support of a Science Foundation Arizona Grant and in continuous use and ongoing development since 2011, the Polaris-M polarization ray tracing engine can help you meet your most demanding polarization challengesPolaris-M provides a fully integrated polarization analysis software package with the depth and breadth required to model and analyze polarization critical optical systems. Polaris-M is backed by research and engineering expertise from the world’s most experienced thought leaders in the field of optical polarization analysis.
