  author={Zhonghua Chen},
Angle Dependent Reflectance and Performance of Solar Cells and Absorbers
In this thesis, the reflectance was measured for angles from 10◦ to 80◦ for different n-type silicon based solar cells and for solar absorbers. The measurements were done with unpolarized, p


Coil-coating paints for solar collector panels—II. FT-IR spectroscopic investigations
Abstract A solar collector panel produced from aluminium foil (0.25 mm) coated with a 2–3 μm thin film of black paint is described and characterized. The paint coating on aluminium possesses moderate
Bimetallic Au–Cu, Au–Ni catalysts supported on MWCNTs for oxy-steam reforming of methanol
Abstract This paper interrogates for the first time the catalytic properties of bimetallic Au–Cu/MWCNTs and Au–Ni/MWCNTs catalysts in oxy-steam reforming of methanol. X-ray diffraction (XRD),
