Definitely yes.

In ancient greek times one of the clever ones realised that if they got the soldiers on shore to reflect the suns rays onto a ship, they could set fire to the ship. They did.
...and some people use(d) those reflective 'collars' while on the beach to get a tan under their chin and neck.
