We started to use 3DOptix simulation software in the Quantum Photonic group led by Prof. Dirk Englund about a year ago. It has proven to be invaluable to our research efforts, allowing us to create "digital twins" of our complicated optical setups, and by doing so improving our understanding and repeatability of our experiments. We found the software very aesthetic, easy to use and has allowed us to easily analyze our optical systems. Over 5 people in the group are active users of the software, and more are interested in incorporating it in their experiments.
