dc.description.abstract Isotropic radiators are known to be a useful tool across a wide range of applications, from applications in light dosimetry in human/animal tissue to calibration of sensitive laboratory equipment. While the bene ts are known, constructing such a tool has proven to be di cult. Currently, there are no commercially available isotropic or nearly isotropic radiators. Previous attempts at constructing an isotropic radiator have been limited to a 10% isotropy level. This thesis covers the design, construction, and analysis of a nearly isotropic optical light source. The constructed source has extrema anisotropies, over a solid angle of approximately 3 steradians, of +\-3% (with 95% of that solid angle being within +\- 2.5% anisotropy). en_US
