... applications, photogrammetry is commonly used to determine the shape and possible deformations of large-scale solar concentrator structures [( 7 8 )]. However, with a higher density of measured points (circular dots, referred to as “targets” and applied to the surface by a printed adhesive foil), PG can also...

.... For the off-axis angle varying from 0 deg to 1 deg, the ideal flux distribution will shift away from the center of the defined boundary and the solar concentration ratio at the edge of the boundary will decrease. The seriousness of nonuniformity can be quantified as to how much variation of flux distribution...
