Genetic algorithms are applied to the design optimization of a lightguide. Physically impossible offspring generated by the genetic algorithm evolution are removed by a simple logical test before further iterations. The performance of the lightguide and the evolution of the design are measured by a single criterion combining both uniformity of illumination and brightness. The process produces a nonintuitive solution, and experimental results match the theoretical predictions and show an improvement in performance of the final design.
