    I'm looking to make a SAD type fixture for my wife and wondered what type of
    lamps(fluorescents) I needed to do this.

    I also wondered if I needed to use an opaque white acrylic to diffuse the
    light or if it would be best to just have a clear acrylic as the opaque
    might block out some important light?????

    Many thanks,

    I've got a 300W halogen floodlight (with safety grill) mounted above my
    workshop bench. This makes me feel like I'm working in full sunshine
    while it's the middle of winter. It's inherently full spectrum and
    gives off warmth too. What more could you ask for. :)

    An ordinary table lamp on a time clock set to light about ten minutes
    before your alarm goes off, makes winter morning wake-ups much easier.

    Any fluorescent lamps will do, whether it's cool white, warm white, any color
    temp tri-phosphors. As long as it's nice and bright.
  4. ....a high-CCT CFL washing the ceiling to turn it "blue" (I use an
    Osram-Sylvania Gro-Lux PAR CFL). That plus a halogen lamp similar to yours
    gives me blue sky and sunshine all winter long in my office.
