22 Jul 2008 |
A little mistake found in the manual |

30 Jul 2008 |
Added a new example |

23 Apr 2009 |
Add an example about how to simulate a 3 mirrors ring cavity (also called a mode cleaner). |

12 Jan 2010 |
Example to reduce the computational time of OSCAR, better memory allocation of matrices and correct a sign error |

03 Feb 2012 |
The code has been fully rewritten (with Oriented Object Programming) to be faster and more user friendly.
Higher order optical modes are supported. |

12 Jul 2012 |
Can simulate linear cavity with arbitraty number of mirrors. New syntax to define laser beam and Interfaces. Minor bug correction. |

25 Jan 2013 |
Can use a more reliable to propagate the beam and add a new routine to calculate cavity eigen modes. |

19 Feb 2013 |
Bug fixes |

09 Sep 2013 |
An accelerated convergence scheme has been implemented as well as the possibility to use strong focusing telescope.
Additional minor improvement to existing functions |

22 Jan 2014 |
It includes now the function to read the .dat from the ZYGO interferometer.
New functions (plot PSD, expand into higher order modes) and the usual bug fixes |

30 Jun 2014 |
New functions and bug fixes |

22 Dec 2014 |
Implementation of the Zernike polynomials
Small improvement to some functions and a handful of bug fixes |
