Paper Abstract

A well-designed imaging zoom lens provides variable image magnification while maintaining good image quality. A zoom capability can also be of use in nonimaging optical designs. In this contribution we present a novel optimized design for a nonimaging projection system that provides high flux transfer efficiency over a wide range of angular beam widths, while maintaining good angular beam uniformity. A special feature of our design is that it is a doublet for which the two interior lens surfaces are precise negatives.
