dc.description.abstract Optical simulation softwares are essential tools for designing and commissioning laser interferometers. This article aims to introduce OSCAR, a Matlab based FFT code, to the experimentalist community. OSCAR (Optical Simulation Containing Ansys Results) is used to simulate the steady state electric fields in optical cavities with realistic mirrors. The main advantage of OSCAR over other similar packages is the simplicity of its code requiring only a short time to master. As a result, even for a beginner, it is relatively easy to modify OSCAR to suit other specific purposes. OSCAR includes an extensive manual and numerous detailed examples such as simulating thermal aberration, calculating cavity eigen modes and diffraction loss, simulating flat beam cavities and three mirror ring cavities. An example is also provided about how to run OSCAR on the GPU of modern graphic cards instead of the CPU, making the simulation up to 20 times faster. eng
