Light defration - How can I distribute the light evenly

  1. Dec 6, 2008 #1

    Im making a light at home, but I have a problem with it. The luxeon star being used to supply the light creates a large bright spot on the top lens, and leaves the rest of the lens mcuh darker. I now need to make a lens to sit over the luxeon star which will defract the light so it lights up the top lens evenly.

    Attached is a picture of the light that I made it paint to explain myself better. Im really after the shape of lens that would be required to bend it away from the center (which is where the bright spot is).
