The Simultaneous Multiple Surface design method in two dimensions (SMS2D) is applied to the design of aspheric V-groove reflectors. The general design problem is to achieve perfect coupling of two wavefronts after two reflections at the groove, no matter which side of the groove the rays hit first. Two types of configurations are identified, and several symmetric and asymmetric design examples are given. Computer simulations with a commercial simulation package are also shown.
