Abstract The temperature field problem described in the paper is analytically solved for the absorber of a new type solar collector. The absorber consists of two plates, one of them being flat and placed on top of the other plate made with square profile. The temperature field is calculated for four areas using the Laplace equation under stationary conditions. For each area the boundary conditions are written and the Laplace equation solved. The resultant temperature fields are found for each area separately.
