Paper Abstract

The methods of optimization for illumination optical systems with application of Total Internal Reflection are considered. The problem of optimization includes: a) the optimal values of the angles for reflecting triangles in order to have maximum efficiency; b) the calculations of the angles for the case of both primary light (from the bulb) and secondary light (from the reflector). Developed methods can be applicable for automotive lamps, aviation lighting and any other illumination systems.
