JWST part 2: Modeling the James Webb Telescope segments in OpticStudio - webinar

In this webinar, we will continue our model of the James Webb Space Telescope. The primary mirror consists of 18 hexagonal segments. We will create static segments and look at the effects on the system PSFs and MTFs. And we’ll get started with creating dynamic segments that can move independently of one another.

See the Article Attachments link for OpticStudio sample files and a detailed paper on the telescope.
