A retro-reflector is a device or surface that is capable of reflecting light back to its source with minimal scattering. UA’s Russell Chipman, Ph.D., and Karlton Crabtree, Ph.D., created a novel design for a retro-reflector that increases the reflection efficiency while reducing the complexity of the system.
