Paper Abstract

The purpose of this work is to present the measurements of the main characteristics of a series of RXI concentrators developed: angular transmission, acceptable angle, optical efficiency, and optical concentration. The RXI concentrator has been designed with the Simultaneous Multiple Surfaces method developed by Minano et al. at the Instituto de Energia Solar--Universidad Politecnica de Madrid. The design characteristics are: geometric concentration 1256X, acceptance angle 1.8 degree(s).
