Abstract:
NOW AVAILABLE- low-cost photovoltaic power and /or thermal energy using intermediate concentrators. This patented technology developed and tested at the University of Arizona uses a unique concentrator made of inexpensive glass back-surfaced mirrors mounted on parabolas molded out of foamed plastic. The use of back-surfaced mirrors instead of aluminum or other materials assures a long life of high reflectivity. Each mirror segment is aligned using a laser which optimizes efficiency.
