Some interesting physics

Luminiscent solar collectors should bring back some enthusiasm in concentrated solar power generators that I must admit I lost after the previous gloomy portentous article.

These fluorescent films use total internal reflection of fluorescent light within these films to concentrate it, which can be fed to solar cells.

The coolest part is that even diffuse light (cloudy days) can be concentrated using these. That's the part that really got me really get aroused.
