Short Bio: 
Cyril Caliot is a CNRS researcher at the Processes, Materials, and Solar Energy (PROMES) laboratory (France). His research topics cover mainly the field of coupled heat and mass transfer modeling at high temperature (including radiation) in solar reactor and receiver. http://www.promes.cnrs.fr
More Info: 
Abstract: The state of the art of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) technology will be reviewed and some actual developments done at PROMES (CNRS, France) will be presented. Specifically, the research about the influence of radiative transfer in high temperature volumetric and surface receivers will be introduced as well as a numerical study on solar thermal decomposition of methane.
