Geometrical optics is used to devise and study a spherical thick lens for concentrating solar light onto a multilayered photovoltaic cell. It is found that the desired requirement of maintaining the uniformity of the light bundle and the direction normal to the plane of the photovoltaic device can be met. Construction details are specified for a given concentration ratio. Spherical and chromatic aberrations are seen not to affect the desired behavior of the optical system.

Abstract

Geometrical optics is used to devise and study a spherical thick lens for concentrating solar light onto a multilayered photovoltaic cell. It is found that the desired requirement of maintaining the uniformity of the light bundle and the direction normal to the plane of the photovoltaic device can be met. Construction details are specified for a given concentration ratio. Spherical and chromatic aberrations are seen not to affect the desired behavior of the optical system.
