Zemax simulation data for LED/SPAD communication ranges and coverages.

  • Alexander Griffiths (Creator)



This dataset contains ray tracing data from Zemax OpticStudio. The system being simulated is an LED and SPAD based optical communication link for CubeSat inter-satellite links.

Data generated: Nov. 2018
Folders contain raw data files saved from Zemax simulations. Each .txt file contains information on the setup and results from a different detector in the simulation, with increasing distance from the transmitter.

ReadFiles.m is a MATLAB script for reading in the .txt files in a suitable format for analysis.

Analyse.m is a MATLAB script for processing the intensity data appropriately to generate angular data.
