Abstract: An experimental procedure has been developed for the optical characterisation of sunlight collectors, prismatic lenses, optically designed for concentration on photovoltaic cells. The described instrumentation and measurement techniques examine the total collection efficiency of the lens, as well as the energy distribution in the image plane. A specific study has been devoted to investigate the image uniformity, separating the light contributions due to the different lens regions. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
