A '''Fresnel lens''' is a lens that works like a convex lens, but which eliminates the bulk of such a lens by the use of a series of angled steps in the front surface of an otherwise flat sheet of glass or plastic. The steps are angled in such a way as to concentrate light at the focus.

The Wilson Solar Grill is being designed to be able to use latent heat storage to cook after sunset, collecting the heat with a Fresnel lens.

A Fresnel lens is a lens that works like a convex lens, but which eliminates the bulk of such a lens by the use of a series of angled steps in the front surface of an otherwise flat sheet of glass or plastic. The steps are angled in such a way as to concentrate light at the focus.
