Functional principle

Glass is a light conductor: as a result of total reflection, light moves through a glass pane and escapes almost unimpeded on the other side.

To generate planar light you need a structure on the glass surface on which the light can be scattered. Such a structure must be subject to a specific distribution to guide the light through the glass so as to ensure an impression of homogeneous light.

AEQUILUX has used and further developed this principle of glass as a light conductor. AEQUILUX technology not only facilitates generation of homogeneous, luminous surfaces, but also of luminous lettering, logos or similar elements on the glass, which can be optimized in terms of homogeneity.

Structure distribution on the glass surface depends on a range of factors including, for example, the dimensions of the glass, material, values or the light source. Only when all of these parameters have been exactly recorded is it possible to generate a distribution of structure via which homogeneous light distribution can be extensively generated.

Such a distribution can be validated in model form using optical simulation software.
