"I have found LASCAD to be a useful tool, especially in conjunction with TracePro, for the evaluation of thermal lens and resonator mode performance in diode-pumped solid-state resonators. I look forward to continuing with the recent version of LASCAD that now include 3-level as well as 4-level laser materials. The LASCAD graphical user interface is intuitive and relatively easy to use. I have found the FEA and BPM data output files to export easily into Excel and other programs for additional use. For a relatively inexpensive program, LASCAD offers a lot of computation power for the Electro-optic and Laser engineer. I have recommended LASCAD to several of my colleagues and all of them have been pleased."

"We now are using LASCAD several years for development of RGB lasers for applications in display technology, and could achieve very good results in cavity design optimization of our folded resonator systems with the help of the program. In conclusion we can say that LASCAD is a very important program for development of laser resonators that allows quick simulation of different parameter configurations."

"AZURA LASER AG is using LASCAD successfully for 2 years. The program has been helping us a lot to speed up development of our laser system MESA AC. Results of simulation have been in excellent agreement with our experiments."

"LASCAD is a very useful tool, that helped us to increase the output power and the beam quality of our laser resonators during the recent years. Simulation results turned out to be in very good agreement with our measuerements. Quick visualisation of results makes the program very valuable for research as well as for education."
