Abstract
Efficient hybrid luminaire development is an integral part of the Hybrid Solar Lighting Program at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Hybrid luminaires are necessary to blend light from a fiber optic solar source with electric fluorescent lamps. The luminaire designs studied involve a commercially available fluorescent luminaire that has been modified to include optical elements for efficiently dispersing fiber optic solar light sources. Quantitative measurements of optical efficiency and spatial intensity distribution for two luminaire designs are compared.
