Title: Solar light systems, and related components and methods

Abstract

A solar light system may include two stages of optical concentration with intermediate removal of infrared radiation between the optical concentration stages. A second stage of optical concentration may prepare multiple concentrating beams of processed solar radiation with visible light with each such concentrating beam directed to a different corresponding light conduit for transmission to an interior space for interior lighting. System modularization may provide flexibility to accommodate a variety of interior lighting applications.
