Resources

Spectra of Lamps and more Spectra of Lamps (Carlos Tapia) Refractive index database Zemax Knowledgebase Lens Designs by Daniel J. Reiley Glossary of lighting terms

Museum

Lamps and tubes - an incredible collection of lamps Museum of modern showlighting - thanks Giovanni and colleagues

Conferences

IODC - the olympic games for all the lens design and illumination design folks.

Colleagues and Blogs

Karl Guttag on Tech. Great blog on AR / VR. Mike Wood Consulting. Great resource from etendue to stage lighting. Erin McDermot What is optical engineering ? Jim Klein‘s Optical Design Guide - some thruth on optics and customers (!). ETC white papers - Entertainment lighting and electronics

Real Science

Qiskit - Demystifying quantum computers and preparing for open source code development.

Cool Kickstarter Projects

K|Lens One - A Lighfield Lens you can buy

Our pick of great Books

Phase Space

Kurt Bernardo Wolf - „Geometric optics on phase space“. The math of phase space transformations. Beautiful and sophisticated.

Illumination Optics

Julio Chaves - „Introduction to Nonimaging Optics“. The useful one.

Imaging Optics

O‘Shea - Bentley „Designing Optics with CodeV“. Under the hood of CodeV is the most powerful optical engine you can imagine. But sometimes it is hard to use (endless 3 letter codes). The book guides the beginner to overcome this. Herbert Gross „Handbook of optical systems“ Vol. 1-5. The bible.

General Optics

Haferkorn „Optik“ (German). The book that knows that a principal plane is strictly speaking a principal shell. Buchwald „Einführung in die Kristalloptik“ (German). The real reference for crystal optics. Brookers „Modern classical optics“ taught us that there is a étendue quantum.

Stuff we recommend

Papers

100 significant papers on Illumination SPIE vol. 5487 (2004) on the Optics of the James Webb Space Telescope Leukos , the journal of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Marco Mout tought us how to simulate diffraction by ray tracing. Martin Ploke „Lichtführungseinrichtungen mit starker Konzentrationswirkung“, Optk Vol. 25 (1967). The invention of the compound concnetrators. Last but not least : Kruger and Dunning : Unskilled and unaware of it - a hot topic, ever more current Akerlof : The market for lemons - How the power of the market is limited A possible reason for the appearence of the comet that extinguished the dinosaurs and an explanation for the differing measured values of the Hubble constant.
