Abstract

We have designed a new TIR(Total Internal Reflection) structure for generating an LED lens which can produce a rectangular beam with small divergence angle in two perpendicular directions for an optical guidance system. The lens can control the divergence angle in the horizontal direction to be a small value of about 8° with a 1 mm × 1 mm LED source, also in the vertical direction it can be about 7°, with optical collection efficiency higher than 0.83. After the lens is manufactured, the work demonstrates that the lens is suitable for an optical guidance system.
