Paper Abstract

A reflector design method that follows the standard reflector design principle but uses equations to match incident angles and reflected angles is presented. Using this method, errors introduced by traditional graphic approach are minimized if not eliminated in many cases. The resolution of the reflector profile is no longer limited. A calculation method that is capable of generating reflector profiles in (x,y) form is also presented. The methods and all results are presented for symmetric reflector configurations.
