The general object of the invention is to provide means by which radiant energy from the sun may be used to convert a liquid into vapor in a limited space or area, but at which area the rapid flow of the liquid prevents an excessively high temperature, notwithstanding the high concentration of solar energy. A further object is to provide improved means for localizing the heat absorption and for preventing re-radiation thereof.
