How do experts find solutions to problems in illumination optics? What happens in the head of an experienced optical designer? In my standard five day course, which I often teach together with my friend and colleague Henning Rehn, we give a comprehensive insight into the deep physics and beautiful mathematics of illumination optics. We then fill the “toolbox” with methods and design elements. Finally, using a few archetypal examples, we show how to analyze problems from first principles, and how to use these insights and the toolbox to choose the right design approaches. Here is the full description of the course.
