1.3 PHYSICAL SCIENCES, Optics
The book chapter reviews recent developments in the design and fabrication of solar concentrators utilising holographic optical elements. The advantages and disadvantages of the use of holographic components in solar energy applications are analysed. In addition, recent experimental results from the recording and characterisation of different types of holographic optical components, such as single spherical and cylindrical lenses, multiplexed holographic gratings with high diffraction efficiency are presented. The results reveal the high potential of photopolymer materials for fabrication of holographic components for solar applications.
