Abstract

We identify and evaluate new categories of dual-contour refractive-reflective aplanatic lenses, some of which can satisfy total internal reflection at the secondary surface. Raytrace simulations for a representative design in both solar concentrator and collimator (illumination) mode reveal high efficiency while approaching the thermodynamic limit for radiative transfer.
