Solar blinds

 

Concept is shown in profile: (a) Absorption Mode; (b) Reflection Mode, where vertical bars represent the glass panes that surround the blinds; sunlight from exterior is indicated in the left.
The solar blinds consist of metallic fins, each ideally with a reflective (white or silvery) convex face and an absorptive (black) concave face – this allows control of amount of solar energy absorbed by the blinds, as well as of natural illumination in the house interior.
