      Introduction to Nonimaging Optics provides the first entry-level resource on this rapidly developing field. The book is divided into two sections: the first one deals with nonimaging optics—its main concepts and design methods. The second summarizes general concepts, including rays and wave fronts, reflection and refraction, and : $ The properties of nonimaging compound parabolic concentrator (CPC)-type devices are examined in which the extreme direction is not constant but rather is a variable that can change along the reflector. One can then retain the maximal concentration or radiative efficiency of the CPC while the flux map on the absorber or target is modified, depending on whether the device is used for optical Cited by:

    Roland Winston is a leading expert in nonimaging optics and its applications to solar energy. A member of the "Founding Faculty" of UC Merced, he received a Guggenheim Fellowship in , and has received numerous other awards and honors for his research. He is an elected Fellow of the Optical Society of America and the AAAS, and is the lead author of the definitive text Nonimaging Optics 5/5(1). Illumination Engineering: Design with Nonimaging Optics R. John Koshel (Editor) This book brings together experts in the field who present material on a number of important and growing topics including lighting, displays, solar concentrators.

    A classical book in this field is given in reference ' and its current status can be viewed in the Proceedings of "Nonimaging Optics: Maximum-Efficiency Light Transfer" SPIE conferences whose fifth edition has been held last July in Denver.

An Optimized non-imaging optics example • THE flux at the surface of the Sun, kW cm-2, falls off with the square of distance to a value of mW cm-2 above the Earth's atmosphere, or typically 80– mW cm-2 at the ground.

Abstract. Nonimaging optics is the theory of thermodynamically efficient optics and as such, depends more on thermodynamics than on optics. Historically, nonimaging optics that work as ideal concentrators have been discovered through such heuristic ideas as “edge ray involutes,” “string method,” “simultaneous multiple surface,” and “tailored edge ray concentrator,” without a Cited by: 6.

The term nonimaging optics is concerned with applications where imaging formation is not important but where effective and efficient collection, concentration, transport and distribution of light.

Nonimaging optics (also called anidolic optics) is the branch of optics concerned with the optimal transfer of light radiation between a source and a target. Unlike traditional imaging optics, the techniques involved do not attempt to form an image of the source; instead an optimized optical system for optimal radiative transfer from a source to a target is desired.Moreover, there is often the need to explicitly avoid image formation, and accomplish with additional goals such as maximum transfer of light (high efficiency), reduced optics size and costs, precribed illuminance patterns or uniformity in the delivered light beams.

The branch of optics that specializes in these types of problems is called.Book Description. Introduction to Nonimaging Optics covers the theoretical foundations and design methods of nonimaging optics, as well as key concepts from related fields.
