Abstract : Elongated, hollow flux guides are adapted to efficiently transport high density solar flux over relatively long distances. The guides may be cylindrical, curved, or conically shaped. The conical guides provide further concentration of the already concentrated solar flux. Systems including parabolic collectors and utilizing the novel flux guides to transport the flux collected thereby to a remote point of utilization are also disclosed. (Author)
