Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to present the potential of photovoltaic systems using holographic solar concentrators. A hologram used here focuses light, spectrally splits it and diverts unwanted infrared heat away from the solar cell. The output of the hologram appears as a perpendicular thin spectral line and is displaced to solar cells on both sides. To obtain optimum design conditions we used the coupled wave theory and the vector ray tracing method. The measured data showed that the diffraction efficiency was 75 % and the spectral bandwidth was 350 nm.
