Koehler Illumination Calculator
View All Technical Tools
Mathematically determine how to configure a source and two lenses into a Koehler Illumination setup. Calculator uses the paraxial lens approximation and enables an initial lens selection. Once lenses are selected, EO recommends modeling one's Koehler Illumination setup in optical design software such as Zemax, CodeV, or FRED to analyze and revise as needed. Please note that performance will vary based on source and lens selections.
