Abstract
Precision plastic optical systems frequently depart from traditional design geometries and often include integrated optical and mechanical features. Light can often propagate through the plastic "mechanical" features as easily as through the optical surfaces. This paper discusses modeling and analysis techniques that have been used successfully to quantitatively evaluate energy collection and stray radiation performance in several unusual plastic optical systems. Examples will include a fluid flow sensor and an injection molded plastic triplet imaging system.
