The author acknowledges the valuable work of many CPV pioneers who were responsible for the research progress described in this Chapter. At the risk of overlooking others, the author has particularly benefited from numerous articles by and discussions with Charles Backus, Andreas Bett, Vahan Garboushian, Martin Green, Richard King, Sarah Kurtz, John Lasich, Antonio Luque, Jerry Olson, Gabriel Sala, Richard Schwartz, Richard Swanson, and Masafumi Yamaguchi. Tomorrow's CPV companies will be building on the successes of these early leaders in developing high-efficiency solar cells and solar CPV technologies. In the field of hydrogen and electrolysis, the author acknowledges valuable discussions with John Turner, Krish-nan Rajeshwar, Joe Hartvigsen, S. Srinivansan, and again, John Lasich, the originator of the hybrid solar CPV concept for electrolytic hydrogen production.
