Abstract:
(EN) A solar energy system can include at least one holographic optical element to encode the focusing of solar radiation. Multiple holograms and/or multiple layers can be used to focus light over a band(s) of angles and/or wavelengths onto an array of solar cell elements. The selection of holograms in a concentrator can allow a photovoltaic device to receive light over a wide range of incident angles, and can allow for the receiving of a wide band of wavelengths without inoperable gaps in angle of incidence or wavelength. This range of incident angles for solar cells allows the solar cells to receive light over a large period of daylight without the need to mechanically rotate or pivot the device in order to track the movement of the sun throughout the daylight period.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système à énergie solaire pouvant comprendre au moins un élément optique holographique pour coder la concentration d'un rayonnement solaire. Des hologrammes multiples et/ou des couches multiples peuvent être utilisés pour concentrer la lumière sur une ou plusieurs bandes d'angles et/ou de longueurs d'onde dans un réseau d'éléments de cellules solaires. La sélection d'hologrammes dans un concentrateur peut permettre à un dispositif photovoltaïque de recevoir la lumière sur une plage étendue d'angles incidents, et peut permettre la réception d'une plage étendue de longueurs d'onde sans intervalles inexploitables dans l'angle d'incidence ou la longueur d'onde. Cette plage d'angles incidents pour des cellules solaires permet aux cellules solaires de recevoir la lumière sur une période importante de lumière du jour sans avoir besoin de faire tourner ou de faire pivoter mécaniquement le dispositif afin de suivre le mouvement du soleil pendant la période de lumière du jour.
