Professor John Koshel, associate dean and professor in illumination design, radiometry at the College of Optical Sciences, University of Arizona will give a seminar,
entitled “The Art of Illumination”, on the 16th of June at 11 AM, room PLTK 01.27, Kasteelpark Arenberg 31, 3001 Heverlee.
Illumination systems are used for a number of fields, from lighting to solar concentrators to lithography.
One field that has been gaining traction is Illumination for the art community.
The Illumination Design Group at the College of Optical Sciences, University of Arizona has been doing a number of projects in this area,
including modeling light interaction with sculptures based on optics principles,
solid-state lighting of precious works of art, development of spectral systems for art conservation, and so forth.
These systems will be presented, especially the development of tools that can be used in these systems and within the Illumination arena as a whole.
One such tool is the parametrization of freeform optics for oblique lighting.
With this advance further design with extended sources, optimization, and tolerancing becomes realistic.
