  • Publication number: 20140192509
    Abstract: An embodiment of an illumination device comprising a broad band artificial light source and a non-liquid chromatic diffuser transparent to visible light comprising a dispersion of elements of nanometrical dimensions of a first material with of certain refractive index in a second material with different refractive index, wherein the light is scattered producing a separation and different distribution between cold and hot components of the light originally produced by the source, according to a scattering process in “Rayleigh” regime. The device allows illumination effects similar to those of natural outdoor environments to be reproduced in indoor environments.

  • Publication number: 20140133125
    Abstract: An embodiment of a lighting system for illuminating an environment with a lighting that simulates natural lighting includes: a first light source which emits a beam of visible light; a diffused-light generator delimited by an inner surface, which receives the light beam, and an outer surface, the diffused-light generator being at least partially transparent to the light beam. The diffused-light generator transmits at least part of the light beam and emits, through the outer surface, visible diffused light, the correlated color temperature of the transmitted light being lower than the CCT of the visible diffused light. The lighting system includes a dark box which hosts the first light source, the dark box being optically coupled to the environment via the diffused-light generator.

  • Patent number: 8469550
    Abstract: An embodiment of a solid optical sky-sun diffuser, which comprises a transparent solid matrix embedding a dispersion of transparent nanoparticles having an average size d in the range 10 nm?d?240 nm; wherein: the ratio between the blue and red scattering optical densities ??Log [T(450 nm)]/Log [T(630 nm)] of said diffuser falls in the range 5???2.5, where T(?) is the Monochromatic Normalized Collinear Transmittance; in at least one propagation direction, said Monochromatic Normalized Collinear Transmittance is T(450 nm)?0.4; in at least one propagation direction said Monochromatic Normalized Collinear Transmittance is T(450 nm)?0.9, said propagation direction being the same or different from that at which said Monochromatic Normalized Collinear Transmittance is T(450 mm)?0.4.
