Abstract
An approach using holographic techniques to fabricate an optical concentrator for a solar cell is described. This concentrator consists of a hologram and a lenticular lens. The lenticular lens collects the sunlights from arbitrary incident angles. The sunlights are then launched into the hologram and generate diffracted light waves. Most of the diffracted waves are normally incident into the solar cell. Thus, reflectivity of the light on the surface of the solar cell is minimized, and the solar energy concentration is increased.
