Stepped Light Guides
Brief Description:The intection prisms of a right angle light guide are positioned in a stepped two-dimensional array, such that they will not obstruct or divert any light already traveling down the light guide.Applications:For a high efficiency wave guide for either collecting light incident on one face and transmitting it to one edge, or alternatively...

Multispectral Imaging CMOS Sensor
ProblemMultipixel image sensors are widely used in digital camera, LIDAR, medical imaging devices, and other equipment. For color image sensors, typically arrays of pixel elements are used for each pixel position. Light reaches each pixel element through a respective color filter, so each pixel element responds primarily to a single color, for example...

Freeform GRIN Optics for Illumination Design
ProblemNew methods in freeform optical design have enabled recent improvements in illumination design. Freeform optical surfaces are often complex and costly to manufacture and test. Additionally, holes and discontinuities in the illumination pattern (such as exist in the letter ‘B’, for example) require discontinuities in the freeform...
