The LEDs face backward toward metallic parabolic reflectors that are precision-engineered to generate high- and low-beam photometric characteristics.
In the past few decades, parabolic reflectors and phase arrays have been normally designed for these requirements.
Compound parabolic concentrators (CPCs) are a part of concentrating collectors, which contain parabolic reflectors and planar receivers as shown in Figure 3.
One near field application which remains uncharted by reflectarrays is Compact Antenna Test Ranges (CATR) [14], which employ one or more parabolic reflectors to simulate open range conditions in a closed environment, so the far field of the antenna under test can be directly measured.
Due to its deeply curved parabolic reflectors, the focal point lies inside the dish [11, 12].
The disks are parabolic reflectors, which amplify and focus sound waves.
This technique is enjoying increased popularity, for the mirrors actually cost less than those used in parabolic reflectors, according to the statement.
