Abstract
Fluorescent planar concentrators have been discussed in the literature for about five years. The advantages of the system are the ability to concentrate both direct and diffuse light, and variability in transparency which offers the possibility of a manifold of hybrid applications. The best total efficiency measured for electrical conversion with a stack of two plates is 4 %, the highest energy concentration factor at the output edge was ten. Theoretical calculations of the limitations on the concentration factor are presented. The life-time of the total system could be improved, so the first commercial applications are now being planned.
