Abstract

The two-dimensional (2D) compound parabolic concentrator's (CPC) characteristics are analyzed. It is shown that CPC's height is taller and its light collecting ability is stronger with the CPC's field of view decreasing when the bottom radius is unchanged. According to the ZEMAX analysis, CPC is good at collecting optical signal, and the antenna combining CPC with hemispherical lens can gather more optical signal than a single CPC or CPCs combined in series. The light propagation of scattering optical communication based on multiple scattering is simulated by Monte Carlo method, and the results show that using CPC as receiving antenna can strengthen communication system's signal collecting ability and increase its communication distance.
