Full text not available from this repository.


A radiation concentrator device 21 for improved efficiency in solar systems by limiting reflected light, comprising a radiation concentrator element 27 comprising a radiation transmissive surface 29, a radiation receiving device and disposed on the incident radiation side of the concentrator element 27 is a recapture element 23 for recapturing at least a portion of radiation lost from the concentrator element 27, where the recapturing element allows transmission of incident light into the concentrator element 27, recaptures escaping radiation from the concentrator element and reflecting the radiation back into the concentrator element. Also disclosed are radiation concentrator device 21 where the recapture element 23 comprises ridged or grooved structures to increase the internal reflection of the radiation. The concentrator element 27 may also be provided with luminescent materials.
