Title (EN) ILLUMINATION SYSTEM WITH NON-RADIALLY SYMMETRICAL APERTURE
(FR) SYSTÈME D’ÉCLAIRAGE À OUVERTURE NON-RADIALEMENT SYMÉTRIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Illumination systems are disclosed that include a light source or a bank of light sources having a non-radially symmetrical aperture having a longer dimension and a shorter dimension, such that the light source or bank of light sources produces illumination with a non-radially symmetrical angular intensity distribution having a larger angular dimension and a smaller angular dimension. The illumination systems include an integrator having an entrance end optically connected to the bank of light sources, an exit end, and a dimension that experiences a larger increase from the entrance end to the exit end. The integrator is disposed so that the dimension experiencing the larger increase is substantially aligned with the larger angular dimension of the illumination produced at the entrance end of the integrator.
(FR)Des systèmes d’éclairage comprenant une source de lumière ou une batterie de sources de lumière à ouverture non radialement symétrique d’une dimension plus grande et plus courte, de sorte que la source de lumière ou la batterie de sources de lumière produise un éclairage à la distribution d’intensité angulaire non radialement symétrique d’une plus grande ou plus courte dimension angulaire. Les systèmes d’éclairage comprennent un intégrateur dont une entrée est optiquement raccordée à la batterie de sources de lumière, une sortie, et une dimension qui expérimente une plus grande augmentation de l’entrée à la sortie. La disposition de l’intégrateur est telle que la dimension qui subit l’augmentation la plus grande est significativement alignée sur la plus grande dimension angulaire de l’éclairage généré à l’entrée de l’intégrateur.
