Caption

Parabolic reflector at Odeillo-Font-Romeau solar power station in the Eastern Pyrenees, France. Sixty three flat orientating mirrors automatically track the motion of the sun, reflecting incident radiation onto the parabolic reflector mirror. The reflector is composed of 9,500 mirrors which concentrate the sun's rays onto a dark-coated furnace at its focus. The system is capable of producing thermal power of 1,000 kilowatts, and achieving a temperature of 3,800 degrees C. within the furnace.
