Paper Abstract

The Dielectric Totally Internally Reflecting Concentrator (DTIRC) has been developed in the past for wireless infrared communications and solar energy applications. This paper proposes a novel non-imaging optic design based on the DTIRC family of concentrators for use in illumination applications. The novel optic can be integrated with a light emitting diode (LED) and can be tailored to meet specific requirements. The proposed optic can be used as a first or secondary optic to provide uniform illumination within a circular footprint with a desired radius. The results from this work show that, with the optimised DTIRC, it is possible to achieve a uniformity of illuminance of over 95%.
