Uniformity

Halogen lamps and LED arrays can suffer from local variations of light over a surface due to non-uniform illuminance of the source. The Xicato module has a uniform (Lambertian) emitting disk as a source, which is reflected in a perfectly uniform beam with no multiple shadows or color variations over angle. Lambertian radiation patterns are common in the LED industry and optics companies that design and manufacturer reflectors and lenses are familiar with the design requirements, making the process even easier. Beam widths from less than 10° to greater than 90° are obtainable with many luminaire ranges.
