Abstract

We propose a compact optical system made up of a thin collimator and a free-form lens array to provide the uniform illumination of various-shape regions. Analytical formulas to design the lens array are derived. The simulation results for the designed optical elements demonstrate the high-level illumination uniformity of various regions in the form of a rectangle, a cross, a flag-shaped region, a line segment, and a set of line segments.
