PS: feel free to invite others as well! We ask a 5 euro fee for non-members, which can be reimbursed if the person becomes a member afterwards.
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.
More about Prof. Koshel:
As many of us will follow a career in industry after obtaining our PhD, we organize a professional development day for PhD researchers on the 26th of April to help you along the way.
Tips for a smooth transition, the importance of networking and guidance on the do’s and don’ts during an application process will be covered by our three (inter)national speakers.
Everyone is welcome to attend, members and non-members, free of charge – we do ask you to register via
Registration will start at 12:30 at the entrance of auditorium 01.29 at Van den Heuvel-Instituut, Leuven.
Looking forward to welcoming you at our event!
