My project’s goal was to utilize optical fiber to create a hybrid lighting system for an indoor space. The first part of my design is a parabolic collector lens, which would be installed on the roof of the structure. Larger lenses could be used to sustain multiple units. The lens would focus the light through UV and infrared filters and down through a multi-mode fiber optic cable. The flexible nature of the cable and the low-loss properties of the optical fiber would allow for a significant distance between the lens and the receiving light.
