Please give me a clue about how this aparatus works. You cannot use curved
mirrors alone, since they are a priory not perfectly curved.
And if you have figured out how you can turn a diffusive beam of light into
a parallel beam using mirrors only, I'm very interested since that would be
worth some money.
