2) Collimated light means that the wavelengths of the light beams are parallel, resulting in little beam divergence over long distances.
Collimated light is the common factor both in this type of lighting and in a telecentric lens.
In the MicroLens pixel-based light extraction process, micro-optical elements are molded directly into a light guide, and are optimized to deliver more collimated light, which increases the efficiency of the optical system.
The collimated light passes through the test object [O.
For example, in describing how a laser pointer can be used to disable a camera, one guide explains, if redundantly, that it is important to note that "a parallel beam of collimated light does not lose any of its brightness traveling through empty space.
These reflectors direct and focus incident collimated light at either 30[degrees], 60[degrees], or 90[degrees] off axis.
