SOFT OPTICS is an emergent field in design for light management where flexibility, weight reduction, affordability and low embodied energy in production are desirable. Applications include thin film, foil and textile solar concentrators and diffusers with applications in architectural façade systems, solar PV optimization and solid state lighting.
