From Event: SPIE Optical Engineering + Applications, 2018
The flowline design has been shown to be a powerful tool for nonimaging optics, utilizing a vector field analogy to describe the reasoning behind the various designing method. However, as a set of tools the vector analysis has not been fully explored, especially it vector potential, A, which has found its usage in modern physics. In this talk we will try to link the vector potential with the fundamental understanding of thermodynamics.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
