We describe an analytical and numerical method to design and optimize LED (light-emitting diode) collimators. The optimization process is confirmed by optical simulations and experimental measurements of a scaled prototype. The collimator's definitive geometry and design parameters rely on the LED's emitting characteristics and the employed collimator material. The resulting parabolic-elliptical-based collimator shows an optimum performance and a compact structure with requirement for mirrored surfaces.
