Paper Abstract

The design of non-sequential mirrors within the Simultaneous Multiple Surface design method of nonimaging concentrators is presented. The formulation of the edge ray theorem for this problem is stated, which defines the rays to be considered in the design. As a result three new nonimaging concentrators are developed, which work efficiently and close to the thermodynamic limit of concentration in two dimensions.
