Thus, in order to maintain performance, designers should use quite complex optical systems where direct sunlight can be partly reflected depending upon the incident angle. During the summer, the transmittance is normally low, while for low solar altitudes during winter, the transmittance is high. Due to their accurate shape and highly reflective material, these systems are enclosed between a double-glazing insulating unit. These systems reflect direct sunlight backwards and mainly transmit diffuse radiation.

G. ), which minimize daylight supply. g. sufficient lighting levels and colour rendition) and to better occupant health and comfort since it is a mood motivator and affects productivity due to reduced stress and fatigue. During the past few decades, new issues in daylighting design have been raised in conjunction with new demands by the building industry. One of the challenges is to bring usable daylight deep into the core of a building or into non-daylit areas, which may result in significant savings in energy consumption while creating an attractive visual environment.
