Paper Abstract

Illumination engineering is the novel field of more general field of optical design and engineering. A seminar, project-based course has been started at the College of Optical Science, The Univ. of Arizona. Topics include lightpipes, sources, sampling, modeling methods, reflectors, and displays. Guest lecturers from industry provide a wealth of additional content. The goal is to education our next generation of optical designers about this intriguing, complex, yet understudied field. Other goals are to provide training in nonsequential optical design software, connections between experimental data and modeling, and the non-technical aspects of the illumination field.
