Thanks for your answer.

I tried to test the different proposition that have been made, but you
are right there is a problem with my notebook. I cannot use it anymore...

Does anyone have any idea why ?

The integrand to NIntegrate seems far more complicated than the amount
of accuracy that you are asking for.  This is probably why it is so slow
to integrate.

There seem to be problems with the notebook you posted that make it
unreliable to try to evaluate.
<< Graphics`Graphics`
seems to need a semicolon at the end and there seem to be other things
that make it evaluate and produce no output, for example if it is
evaluated, changed in any tiny way, saved, and then tried to evauate

toto[l_] := Sum[dNd=CF=95[l, angle=CF=95[=CE=A8, thc, 
   vlight[thc, =CE=A8, =CE=B8source, l]]], {=CE=A8,
=CF=80/2,2=CF=80,=CF=80= }];

is only slightly faster, because of the very complicated expression to
be evaluated, but produces approximately the same result as NIntegrate
evaluating across the entire interval.
