Course Instructor
SC388: Non-Imaging Optics
Nonimaging optics departs from the methods of traditional optical design by instead developing techniques for maximizing the collecting power of illumination elements and systems. Nonimaging designs exceed the concentration attainable with focusing techniques by factors of four or more and approach the theoretical limit (ideal concentrators). This course develops the conceptual foundations and is an excellent companion to Dr. David Jenkins' course which emphasizes applications.
