At the most basic level, the task of an optical engineer is tracing rays of light as they move from an image to an image collector ( CCD, human eye, CMOS sensor, Photo diode or other detector) or from a light source (laser, LED, halogen, incandescent, quantum dot, fluorescent) to target area.
In practice though the know-how and experience related to illumination design can be quite different than imaging design know-how.
At OFH we have engineers with 10 + years of work history in lighting and illumination design. While the basics of tracing light from a source are similar the applications, materials and production methods are almost limitless.
Materials used in past illumination (non imaging) designs include:
Production methods used in past illumination projects include:
Applications for past illumination design programs include:
