LPI's 45% MF45 CPV Module


Utilizing a combination of LPI's patented Fresnel-Köhler CPV architecture with spectrum-splitting enhacements and standard Si solar cells, the ultra-flat CPV concept should acheive 45% efficiency. A MF45 proof of concept module will be developed partially financed by Fundación Repsol. Click Here to read the full new release. Click Here to visit Fundación Repsol webpage.

Remote Phosphor Solutions

60Watt A19 LED Lamp

LPI specializes in remote phosphor lighting application. This A19 lamp provides superior illumination uniformity. The unique, patented approach offers improved thermal performance and efficiency. The phosphor is contained in a silicone sphere permitting higher temperature applications, such as use inside a glass globe. Click Here for our simple Light Bulb Facts document.

Ventana Optics for CPV Solar

Ventana Optics

The Ventana™ Optical Train design is now available to the CPV industry. This optic set can deliver above 32% module efficiencies for integrators.

Color Mixing and Uniformity

Shell Mixer

The Shell Mixer is placed over an RGB or RGBW source and produces perfect color mixing without compromising collimation. The étendue increase is negligible and the lens diameter is only three times that of the source. Optical efficiency is >90%.

Specialized Landscape Lighting

Kichler 5x Landscape Lamp

This custom optical design satisfies Kichler's demands for high efficiency, with a unique thermal solution. Most of the LED light exits directly from the lamp without the added losses passing through a lens or off a reflector. The LEDs are placed direcly adjacent to the outside of the housing for cooler operation.

Imaging Optics

Short Throw Projector

Optical systems for ultra short-throw projection. These devices can be used as an accessory to conventional projectors (home cinema). Other applications include multimedia equipment for virtual reality systems with rear, frontal or surround projection.
