@article{osti_, title = {Nonimaging optics}, author = {Winston, R}, abstractNote = {This article examines the collecting and intensifying of solar radiation by means of nonimaging concentrators. The topics of the article include a description of nonimaging concentrators, the uses of nonimaging optics in high energy physics, the edge-ray and the geometric vector-flux concentrators. Nonimaging optics is a new discipline with techniques, formalism and objectives quite distinct from the traditional methods of focusing optics. These new systems achieve or closely approach the maximum concentration permitted by the Second Law of Thermodynamics for a given angular acceptance and are often called ideal. Bortz, J, Shatz, N.

We develop a range of practical nonimaging devices for optical fiber applications where rays emerging from a fiber over a restricted angular range (small numerical aperture) must illuminate a small near-field detector at maximum radiative efficiency.

Nonimaging Optics: Maximum Efficiency Light Transfer IV, (3 October ); Nonimaging optics have been demonstrated to concentrate sunlight to 84, times the ambient intensity of sunlight, exceeding the flux found at the surface of the sun, and approaching the theoretical (2nd law of thermodynamics) limit of heating objects up to the temperature of the sun's surface.

Nonimaging optics is the branch of optics concerned with the optimal transfer of light radiation between a source and a target. Unlike traditional imaging optics, the techniques involved do not attempt to form an image of the source; instead an optimized optical system for optical radiative transfer from a source to a target is s: 2.

The relatively young field of nonimaging optics is an ideal tool for designing optimized solar energy collectors and illumination optics and holds great promise in the development of solid stat5/5(1).

Moreover, there is often the need to explicitly avoid image formation, and accomplish with additional goals such as maximum transfer of light (high efficiency), reduced optics size and costs, precribed illuminance patterns or uniformity in the delivered light beams.

The branch of optics that specializes in these types of problems is called. Introduction to Nonimaging Optics provides the first entry-level resource on this rapidly developing field.

From its inception nearly 30 years ago, the optical subdiscipline now referred to as nonimaging optics, has experienced dramatic growth. The term nonimaging optics is concerned with applications where imaging formation is not important but where effective and efficient collection, concentration, transport and distribution of light energy is - i.e.

solar energy conversion, signal detection. Nonimaging optics (also called anidolic optics) [1] [2] is the branch of optics concerned with the optimal transfer of light radiation between a source and a target. Unlike traditional imaging optics, the techniques involved do not attempt to form an image of the source; instead an optimized optical system for optical radiative transfer from a source to a target is desired.

Miñano’s contributions in nonimaging optics have gone much further than the development of theory: he has promoted the use of his state of the art designs and methods to the design of practical devices in multiple applications.

The performance of the XR solar concentrator, using a high efficiency multi-junction solar cell developed recently by Spectrolab, is presented. The XR concentrator is an ultra-compact Nonimaging optical design composed of a primary mirror and a secondary lens, which can perform close to the thermodynamic limit of concentration (maximum acceptance angle for a given geometrical.

In principle, the second law of thermodynamics permits an optical device to.The main applications of Nonimaging Optics are in light (radiation) transfer: Illumination, Solar Energy, Light Pumping, etc.

In all these cases, the radiation of a source has to be transferred with maximum efficiency to a given target. This is also the case in Wireless Optical Links, both for emission and for reception of signals.
