Paper Abstract

The utilization of sunlight is very helpful to saving resources. Different approaches were used for that purpose, but the most of these systems only collect the light of some area of building and illuminate the room near window. Therefore, the primary idea of this paper is to collect large area of sunlight and convert planer light to parallel linear light so it could be guided to the deeper room. A "small unit" which could condense light is designed, and after combining, they could convert the planer light into the parallel linear light beam for the deeper room. Besides, we develop a mathematical model to describe the parallelism of the output light of the unit. OSLO is used to verify the model of the unit, and TracePro is used to verify the efficiency of the system.
