Characterization of Light Pipe Optical Loss for Concentrating Solar Applications

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Light pipes can enable new solar concentrators for PV and thermal systems, but achieving low optical losses is a critical prerequisite. A characterization technique is demonstrated for incidence-angle-resolved transmission for quantifying loss mechanisms.
