Sol–gel Al2O3 powders—matrix in solar thermal absorbers
Porous alumina powders for solar thermal applications, prepared by sol–gel were comparatively investigated, starting from an organo-metallic precursor (aluminum isopropoxide) and an inorganic
Zinc oxide–nickel cermet selective coatings obtained by sequential electrodeposition
Template- and Magnetic Field-Free Chemical Reduction of Ni Nanochains for Ni–Al2O3 Cermet Films: Growth Control, Characterization, and Application
Cermet-based solar absorbers containing nickel (Ni) in a nanochain (NC) structure embedded in an aluminum oxide (Al2O3) film demonstrated a high absorptance of more than 90% of the solar spectrum. In


Nickel pigmented anodic aluminum oxide for selective absorption of solar energy
Spectrally selective surfaces on Al metal sheets were prepared by dc anodization in dilute phosphoric acid followed by black coloration via ac electrolysis in a bath containing NiSO4. These coatings
Optical properties of solution-chemically derived thin film Ni–Al2O3 composites and Si, Al and Si–Ti oxides
The refractive index in the wavelength range 350–2500 nm of solar absorbing and anti-reflecting thin films was determined from reflectance and transmittance measurements. Knowing the refractive
Optical properties of selectively absorbing Ni/Al2O3 composite films
Composite films of Ni particles embedded in an Al2O3 matrix have been produced by controlled coevaporation. The optical properties of the Ni/Al2O3 composites measured over the range of the solar
Solar selective absorber coating for high service temperatures, produced by plasma sputtering
Spectrally selective absorber coatings, deposited on engineering material substrates such as stainless steel, have been developed for service as efficient solar photothermal energy converters. The
