From my own physics experience I think the photons are gonna bounce, but some of the thermal energy is going to melt the mirror if not heat it up if not burn it. edit: I am correct

I wonder if that fresnel lens / solar scorcher could be used to heat water in a practical fashion.. obviously the device is capable of melting metal.. but like: hot water for a shower (even if need to mix with cool water for shower temp) or something like boil water for pasta (without destroying the container)

I think it's a factor of lingering mass, the mass off the aerosol is not compact together enough to egnite. If it were closely compact it would defs ignite😉

Hey, just wondering if you’ve ever opened up a hard drive and have taken the plates out. They’re polished metal.. so if you used these as reflectors, world they last better than mirrors?

That result with the little crater is awesome, because it demonstrates the energy that's actually hitting the mirror. Because it melted the glass, then pushed it into a crater, to make that little lip. So, it demonstrates how concentrating the mass of the photons the light is composed of can actually make it physically push things.

Want to cook with sunlight? set a mirror to reflect through the Fresnel from the bottom to focus the cone upwards, rather the focus to mirror. Maybe use 2 mirrors to get the sun angle more vertical.

Is breaking a mirror with light 7 years bad luck? And if so, is it your bad luck, or the Sun's?

Can you revisit this with polished metal mirrors instead of glass mirrors? I'm just super curious.
You mean grants solar scorcher?

This is probably answered somewhere else, but, what if you switched the mirror and the lens? Instead of trying to reflect the heat ray up, just reflect the sun off the mirror and into the lens. How big would a mirror have to be in order to reflect enough light through the lens to make popcorn?

Tty using a piece of polished steel to reflect instead of a glass mirror. See if it will last longer than the glass to pop popcorn.

Try cooking an egg in the solar scorcher. Use a mini pan which is just big enough for the egg so there can be max light focus.

I know this was made a while ago and summer is not here right now but, I thought of a idea for something like a small upgrade or 2.5. I guess you can say a amplifier. The idea is putting something like your desktop Solar Scorcher at the middle point to amplify the power and once it goes through the second smaller Scorcher the power would be increased. Give it a shot guys I'm Sebastian.

wonder what would happen if they used the focal point of the lens and the heat from burning a see if it raises the max temperature that the fuel could get when burned...that way if you only had propane gas for fuel you would still be able to melt a metal that has a higher melting point than the fuel can deliver...wondering if the 2 separate temperatures are additive ...should try that
