Title: New family of 2-D nonimaging concentrators: the compound triangular concentrator

A new family of 2-D nonimaging concentrators is presented. The most significant characteristics of these concentrators are their small size and the fact that they use straight, as opposed to curve, reflective, or refractive interfaces. The concentrators are filled with a medium of refractive index n>1 and use narrow strips of refractive index n/sub s/
