Paper Abstract

Illumination design continues to advance through the increased use of computer simulations and advances in design and optimization tools. One of the key elements for robust illumination optimization is the creation of merit functions which allow optimization algorithms to compare whether changes in the illumination system improve the performance. A robust illumination merit function is described and its use is illustrated with a number of examples.
