Author Affiliations +
This paper describes the class of nonimaging concentrators that achieve the maximum concentration of light permitted by physical principles. Examples of the concentrators for different absorber shapes are shown, and the modifications necessary to make a practi-cal collector are discussed. The performance of an experimental collector is also shown.
