A Monge-Ampère-Solver for Free-Form Reflector Design

Abstract

In this article we present a method for the design of fully free-form reflectors for illumination systems. We derive an elliptic partial differential equation of the Monge–Ampère type for the surface of a reflector that converts an arbitrary parallel beam of light into a desired intensity output pattern. The differential equation has an unusual boundary… (More)
