Paper Abstract

A slope angle-based reflector profile optimization method is introduced at the first time. Compared to the traditional profile-based optimization method, better optimization results are obtained with this method. Design examples of reflectors for general lighting applications are given to compare both types of optimization methods. Disadvantages, such as range definition, range overlapping, and parameter-dependent problems, which existed in the traditional profile-based optimization method can be totally overcome with the proposed method.
