Paper Abstract

Large-bore polystyrene-Ag-coated hollow glass waveguides with inner diameters of 3.6 mm and 8 mm had been produced for transmission of solar energy, the waveguides were fabricated by liquid phase deposition method, over 6 W focused solar radiation had been transmitted by an 8mm-thick 1m-long waveguide. Although transmission losses of the waveguides were high at the moment, they were promising for transmitting high- power solar energy after being improved.
