Abstract
Fluorescent Planar Concentrators have attracted the interest of a large number of scientists and engineers all over the world from the late seventies up to now. Although the main goal, to develop a concentrator for photovoltaic energy conversion on a large scale, has not been achieved so far, research on these interesting devices is continuing. In this paper, an overview of the history, the operation principle, the energy loss mechanism of the systems and the properties of the materials involved is given. The thermodynamic limits on the maximum concentration ratio are discussed. Some applications will be presented. Finally, information on some new lines of development in this field is given.
