In this study, we design a Cassegrain-based concentrator with tailored mirrors. The proposed concentrator comprises a primary optical element (POE) and a secondary optical element (SOE). The POE is a parabolic concave mirror and the SOE is a hyperbolic convex mirror. In order to achieve uniform irradiance distribution without a homogenizer, the POE is tailored and tilted to generate a uniform distribution by overlapping the energy well. The Cassegrain-based concentrator with tailored mirrors can achieve a geometric concentration ratio of 1236×, a concentration ratio of 1034×, an optical efficiency of 83.66%, an acceptance angle of ±0.38◦, a uniformity of 7.87, and an aspect ratio of 0.254.
