6 October 1999 Extension of tailored design method: illumination with a collimated annular source
Author Affiliations +
Many commercially available sources can be modeled as collimated, annular sources. We use a tailored central-ray method to concentrate light from such a source onto a cylindrical target. The design method is a straightforward extension of methods previously describing for point sources. The device was developed and is now being used for a commercial application.
