This paper presents a novel Fresnel lens capable to significantly reduce chromatic aberration in solar applications. The optical performance of this achromatic lens has been analyzed through ray-tracing simulations, showing a concentration factor three times higher than that attained by a classic Silicone On Glass (SOG) Fresnel lens while maintaining the same acceptance angle. This should avoid the need for a secondary optical element, reducing the cost associated with its manufacturing anddoi:10.1364/oe.24.0a1245 pmid:27607727 fatcat:xya2oj5mnbf5hdmy4q7h2a35oy
