Abstract (en)

The reflector has a reflection surface with facets for reflecting light beams and for generating a light field with a hollow base body with a first end for accommodating a light body and a second end with a light outlet opening. The shapes of individual facets and their positions wrt. the optical axis of the reflector are selected in a defined manner to produce a defined light field contour for a given shape of light body.
