ILLUMINATION GUIDE

Photonics Spectra
Nov 2007
SPIE-Press_FG11.jpgThe 152-page Field Guide to Illumination covers traditional illumination in imaging systems as well as advances in the computer-aided design of high-efficiency nonimaging illumination optics, along with source models that support these techniques. Chapters focus on areas such as color, nonimaging compound concentrators, illumination properties of materials, sources for illumination, classic illumination design and fibers, lightpipes and lightguides. Sections also address backlit displays, architectural illumination, light and visual performance, a luminaire for an open plan office, and exterior and roadway lighting. A bibliography and an index are provided. Angelo V. Arecchi, Tahar Messadi and R. John Koshel; SPIE Press, Bellingham, Wash., 2007; $32, members; $37, nonmembers.



GLOSSARY
