Welcome

Light does not care

whether you bend and shape metal reflectors or solve a Monge-Ampere problem (the latter is currently responsible for 90% of all publications but less than 5% of installations).

Customers don't really care

whether you set up a Poisson bracket in the phase space or you devise a thin lens from basic laws as long as the specification is fulfilled. Yes, sometimes there is not even a specs.

Successful Illumination Design

considerably benefits from mastering a wide variety of techniques. This website is part of some activities of the hosts to bring a few things closer together : Non-imaging optics (mainly solar collection) and other Illumination design Imaging Optics for Illumination Freeform and real hardware Phase space stuff the omnipresent Étendue, but also Hamiltonian optics and …

We do care

There are only a few textbooks on illumination optics. We do work on this issue. Julius is known for his Courses. And once per year we hold a live course together in Jena, Germany.
