Description

This invention relates to an accumulator for receiving and storing radiant energy, such as that transmitted from the sun. It is the general object of our invention to provide means whereby a maximum amount of radiant energy may be absorbed and accumulated for future transformation into useful work, while at the time there is a minimum loss of energy by radiation. A further object of our invention is to provide an accumulator for radiant energy in which the energy or heat will be distributed over a relatively large surface, thereby avoiding concentration of heat on a small area.
