Greetings. I am attempting to model the path of light through different vessels containing water. For example, water in a test tube (pyrex), or water in a quartz cuvette. I am looking for a program which can handle the properties of the container (glass composition) and the medium (water). I am interested in the refraction, focusing, and wavelength dependence.

I welcome all suggestions for proper software for this purpose. I have a great deal of experience with ion optics software, but the optical modeling software is foreign to me.

Kind Regards,
