In this chapter, we investigate the possibility to realize a holographic solar concentrator by using a new photopolymeric material as recording medium. Therefore, two different configurationsofholographiclenses (lenseswithsphericalandcylindricalsymmetry) are describedintermsofbothrecordingprocessandopticalresponsecharacterization. Finally, we propose the possibility to use this new photopolymer to realize holographic solar concentrator for space applications.
