If you're still interested in physics, you might find these pages

High efficiency passive solar heating panels (the conventionally-built
structure in the photo has stayed at 65F or above indoor temperature
since 2007)


and a collector pipe for parabolic trough collectors that can be
constructed to provide extreme absorbancy (required physics help from
some of the folks on alt.solar.thermal)


New stuff being developed all the time. :)
