This is the recorded data corresponding to the graphs provided in the published paper “27.5 W/m2 collection efficiency solar laser using a diffuse scattering cooling liquid”.
Figure 2A: The absorption as a function of ray incident angle for 98% and 0% diffuse reflectivity.
Figure 2B: Modelled solar absorption in Nd:YAG rod as a function of reflectivity of diffuse scatterer in contact with the side wall of the rod.
Figure 4: Modelled laser output power as a function of solar power entering the 20 mm long, 3 mm diameter Nd:YAG rod for 98% reflectivity scatterer and 0% diffuse scatterer.
Figure 6: Laser output power vs total solar power hitting the front surface of the Fresnel lens for both water and water-paint cooling liquids.
Figure 7: Modelled and experimental laser power as a function of power entering the laser rod.
Table of losses: experimentally measured loss from each component in the sunlight collection path.
