Paper Abstract

Optical design software is developed that includes the capability to model illumination systems. The software enables predicting the intensity distribution of radiation at a plane located at some distance from the source. An illumination system comprising an ellipsoidal reflector and a spherical source is modeled and the results of the analysis are compared to those achieved experimentally.
