Paper Abstract

In this work we describe a ray-tracing software package that was created as a tool for the design and the performance analysis of nonimaging optical elements. Tne program can handle a general cylindrically symmetric envelope with a monotonic profile, and the reflecting surface can be either a metal or a dielectric interface. Reflections are treated rigorously using Fresnel formulas, thus a ray is specified by the polarization components of the electric field, rather than by the intensity only. With the help of the program, it is possible to obtain contour plots of the radiation field at any section of the element, as well as transmission functions.
