Paper Abstract

'Daylighting' is the name for any technique which brings as much daylight as possible deep into an architectural space. This paper describes how this can be done with the use of diffractive structures, it points out the design advantages and disadvantages of various structures and gives results obtained with some prototypes. The prototypes are highly efficient over a wide angular range, produce near achromatic light and are relief structures, which allow for inexpensive reproduction by embossing.
