poppy is a Python module that implements an object-oriented system for modeling physical optics propagation with diffraction, particularly for multiwavelength simulations of telescopic and coronagraphic imaging.

Right now only far-field diffraction (Fraunhofer regime) between image and pupil planes is supported; Fresnel propagation and intermediate planes are a future goal.

Developed by Marshall Perrin at STScI, 2010-2012, for use simulating the James Webb Space Telescope.
