Paper Abstract

The Simultaneous Multiple Surface (SMS) method in 3D geometry is presented. Giving two orthotomic input ray bundles and other two orthotomic output ray bundles, the method provides an optical system with two free-form surfaces that deflects the rays of the input bundles into the rays of the corresponding output bundles and vice versa. In nonimaging applications, the method allows controlling the light emitted by an extended light source much better than single free-form surfaces designs, and also enables the optics contour to be shaped without efficiency losses. The method is expected to find also applications in imaging optics
