Color over Angle (CoA) variation in the light output of white phosphor-converted LEDs is a common problem in LED lighting technology. In this article we propose an inverse method to design an optical element that eliminates the color variation for a point light source. The method in this article is an improved version of an earlier method by the same authors, and provides more design freedom than the original method. We derive a mathematical model for color mixing in a collimator and present a numerical algorithm to solve it. We verify the results using Monte-Carlo ray tracing.
