To improve the utilization efficiency of solar energy, a new solar optical concentrating system composed of a parabolic reflector with a square cross-section, a hyperbolic reflector with a square cross-section and two converging convex lenses has been designed. The proposed method can simultaneously focus and shape sun light into a square pattern on the solar panel. In addition, the total reflection property of photonic crystal within the range of the visible sunlight spectrum has been analyzed. Finally, the relationship between solar concentrating multiples and the diameter of the primary mirror has been discussed.
