An optical system that is designed to produce a high temperature in a specified area by the optical direction and concentration of solar radiation on that area. The system usually consists of a collecting system that may have reflective optics, refractive optics or a combination of both, and a tracking system that keeps the collecting and directing system properly oriented to the sun.
