Innovation through photonics requires very flexible methods for the design of non-image forming systems in addition to a continuous development of image-forming system engineering. A simple consideration shows, that optical engineering for non-image forming systems needs to be generalized by a systematic inclusion of wave optics. The resulting wave-optical engineering is the base for the design and modeling of systems which generate tailored electromagnetic radiation, that is for photon management.
