Optical System

The optical system for this project requires taking a large area of sunlight and concentrating it on a small pipe. The optical system is made up of two major subsystems.

The mirror film creates a reflective surface to reflect the light towards the pipe.

The mirror structure creates the correct parabolic shape where the mirror film is mounted. The mirror structure must be rotated using the sun tracking control system in order to follow the sun and keep the light focused on the pipe.
