Abstract

A new linear convex Fresnel lens with its groove side down is described. The design philosophy is similar to that of the highly concentrating two-focal Fresnel lens but includes a correction for chromatic aberration. A solar-concentration ratio as high as 80 is achieved. For wide-acceptance angles, the concentration nears the theoretical maximum.
