Title: Design and development of injection molded Fresnel lenses for point-focus photovoltaic systems

Abstract

A summary of work performed on a method of injection molding an 80% efficient point-focus Fresnel lens is presented. A current optical design for compression molded lenses yields a 68.5% efficiency when translated directly to injection molding. An optical design optimized for injection molding, with a mold and process developed for high efficiency Fresnel lenses, yields an 82% efficiency.
