Author Affiliations +
Köhler integrating lenslet arrays can provide collimated, uniform, and color mixed beams from an array of sources of arbitrary color. The integration can be achieved with two lenslet arrays after collimation, with lenslet arrays embedded into certain collimators or close to the sources before collimation with a double sided lenslet shell. The degree of color mixing of the different approaches can be less than ideal. We have investigated the main mixing degradation mechanisms both in the near and in the far field and quantified them for certain source and architecture combinations. From this analysis we can derive simple design rules for successful color mixing.
