Paper Abstract

TIR collimator are essential illumination components demanding high efficiency, accuracy, and uniformity. Various illumination design methods have been developed for different design domains, including tailoring method, design via optimization, mapping and feedback method, and the simultaneous multiple surface (SMS) method. This paper summarizes and compares the performance of these methods along with the advantages and the limitations.
