Abstract

Faceted reflectors are widely used for providing uniform illumination in many commercial lighting products. In this paper, some approaches of constructing faceted reflectors in commercial software are discussed. Two new methods for generating non-rotationally symmetric patterns such as square/rectangular illumination patterns using curved-faceted reflectors are proposed and also explored in commercial software. The performances of various reflectors are compared using Monte Carlo ray-tracing.
