Next online course series starting January 8, 2024

I'll be teaching a series of four courses again, starting Jan 2024:

  • "Understanding Light for Illumination" about the deep, beautiful, yet immediately applicable theory.

  • "Modeling light sources and systems" shows you how to get your ray tracing models right.

  • "Optical elements" fills your design toolbox with lenses, reflectors, fly's eye arrays and more.

  • "Colorimetry for LED users" covers what you need to know to quantify color quality, with a special on spectral LED modeling.

Synopsys kindly handles registration for these courses

Light where it should be

Illumination optics is a truly fascinating field. It's full of surprising depth and beauty, yet practical: Applying the theory to an illumination design project is immensely helpful in getting things right from the start, and avoiding dead ends. I should know, I have been doing this for over 25 years. So when you need assistance with getting the illumination right in a project, I can help you in a multitude of ways:

  • Design: You just want a good illumination optical solution? I can design optics for you, from feasibility and first conceptual ideas to production-ready designs.

  • For a first one hour look at your task: Book me here, pay by credit card and schedule a meeting with me, quick and easy.

  • Design + insight: You need an optical solution, but you're also curious to get insight into the nature of your problem? I can help you learn things about illumination optics on the way: I will happily tell you how I approach your problem from the start, why I choose certain optical concepts, and what I do to get the design right. 

  • You are (or will be) an optical designer for illumination, and you've found you need to dig deeper: You can attend one of my scheduled online courses, (register with Synopsys) or contact me to discuss a dedicated course just for your people, online or in your offices. And you can read our book.

  • You are an optical designer for illumination, and all you need is an expert you can ask to look over your shoulder every once in a while (a.k.a. mentor)? Throughout my professional life, I have been helping younger colleagues around me grow their skills and their careers. This is what I enjoy most, even more than teaching courses
