Primary Solar Concentrators

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Primary solar concentrators are of fundamental importance for efficient solar laser emissions. Parabolic mirror, flat Fresnel lens, elliptical-shaped Fresnel lens (ESFL), ring array concentrator (RAC), and three-dimensional ring array concentrator (3D RAC) solar concentration schemes are presented in this chapter. The readers will acquire the basic knowledge of solar concentration principles by learning numerical analysis of these primary solar concentrators, as well as the Zemax® object implementations and evaluation.
