Concentrating Optics with Big Glass Mirrors for Inexpensive CPV Generation

Open Access Open Access

Abstract

Large, inexpensive, back-silvered glass mirrors are widely used at solar thermal generation plants. The electrical output per mirror may be doubled by optical coupling to highly efficient, triple junction photovoltaic cells.
