T5's and Parabolic Reflectors

I was having a discussion with a local reefer, and the topic of parabolic reflectors helping to increase the output of the light over a standard flat reflector came up. I remember seeing a report with math and diagrams supporting this.

Does anyone have a link to this? I have not been able to find it on the search feature, nor have I been successful via the web.

Thanks in advance,

75g w/ 30g sump, 160# LR, 60# sand: Inverts =18 turbos, 30 nassirus's, 40 blue leg's, 5 emeralds, 1 CBS, 1 skunk cleaner, 1 brown gulf shrimp? and various other LR hitch hikers yet un discovered or un-ID'ed
Fish=1 yellow tang, 1 yellow headed jawfish, 1 pink/blue shrimpgoby, 2 perc clowns.
Future fish = 1 sixline, 1 lawnmower blenny

I think austinsdad has the "white papers" on them, or you might want to PM him to see. I saw it in a post and read the paper. I love mine.

I just found the thread and it was austinsdad

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
