  • Publication number: 20190302344
    Abstract: A lighting system comprises an elongate light guiding structure comprising a input edge miming along the length of the structure, and first and second side walls which extend between the input edge and a end face, at least one of which is stepped. The steps comprise at least a first step region which forms a total internal reflection surface for the light provided into the light guiding structure from the input edge such that light leaves the light guiding structure from the second side wall, and at least a second step region which forms a refracting interface for the light provided into the light guiding structure from the input edge such that light leaves the light guiding structure from the first side wall. In this way the use of refraction and total internal reflection is combined to enable flexibility in the control of the light output distribution as well as the appearance of the system. The lighting system for example comprises luminaire for ceiling mounting.

  • Patent number: 10168024
    Abstract: The invention provides a lighting panel, for use for example within a modular surface system, comprising one or more strips of solid state lighting elements associated with a reflector structure. The lighting panel is adapted for improved uniformity of light intensity across the width of its output area. Lighting elements comprise two or more subsets, each subset adapted to collectively generate a different light intensity profile across the width of the panel output window. The subsets are selectively adapted to generate profiles which, when blended, mutually offset one another's deviations from some common mean intensity across the width of the output window, thereby generating a combined intensity profile of improved uniformity. Embodiments include arrangements in which subsets of lighting elements are adapted to have differing actual or virtual optical path lengths to the reflector surface.

A light source (150) is mounted on the Slight source carrier (140) and emits light (L1, L2, L3) in a vertical main direction into the cavity (110), away from the opening of the cavity (110). A reflective surface (160) reflects at least a subset of the light (L1, L2, L3) emitted by the light source (150) towards the opening. A diffusing element (170) at least partially covers the opening at a second distance (D2) from the light source carrier (140) and diffuses light passing through the opening. The second distance (D2) is at least as large as the first distance (D1).
