This material is based upon work supported by the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University. The Thermoheliodome was a collaborative effort, requiring skills and contributions from individuals with many areas of expertise. In particular, we would like to thank Sigrid Adriaenss ens, YousefAnastas, and Landolf Rhode-Barbarigos for structural and wind loading calculations for the Thermoheliodome. CHAOS lab members past and present including Sean Coffers, Louis Wang, Lindsey Conlan, Belle Douglas, Justin Hinson, and James Coleman all lent a strong hand in construction, fixing, and making figures for the project. Likewise, Bill Tansley, Bob MacFarlane, and John Kinney provided insights and tools for the physical construction and plumbing of the structure. Finally, we would like to thank other Princeton faculty and students associated with the project, George Scherer, Claire Gmachl, Ryan Johns, and Germano Penello.
