We report on the performance of a new hybrid luminaire designed to blend light from a fiber optic solar source with electric fluorescent lamps. The luminaire design studied involves a commercially-available fluorescent luminaire that had been modified to include optical elements for efficiently dispersing a fiber optic solar light source. Quantitative measurements of the hybrid luminaire’s optical efficiency and spatial intensity distribution/deviations are discussed. The effects of static differences and dynamic fluctuations in spatial intensity distribution are qualitatively discussed and potential design improvements examined.
