Abstract
In order to satisfy the requirements for the uniformity of infrared irradiance distribution and system energy efficiency, a freeform surface reflector is designed in this paper. First of all, the model of the infrared light source is established, basing on the shape of the actual light source and its radiation characteristics. Subsequently, a set of differential equations are presented according to the desired irradiance distribution on the optical stop. Afterwards, the surfaces data of the freeform reflector can be obtained by solve the equations using successive approximation method. Then the optical ray-tracing simulation is done by using the Monte Carlo approach. And the allowance of the infrared system is analyzed; the impacts that affect the simulation accuracy and the compensation process are also presented. The simulation results indicate that the distribution uniformity of infrared irradiance characteristics on the optical stop is higher than 95%, and the system energy efficiency reaches to 80%. Therefore, it can be concluded that the designed freeform surface reflector is an efficient approach to meet the demands of the uniform illumination of infrared light source and system energy efficiency.
