Paper Abstract

A new way of producing selective solar absorbing surfaces using ionic irradiation is described. The different techniques of ion beam production of metal-insulator composites are developed using a model system (alkali metals-LiF) and first results are presented on a gold-MgO mixture, which constitutes a very promising system for solar energy conversion in the high energy range. Complementary techniques of characterization using Rutherford Backscattering Spectroscopy and Optical Absorption are described. First results on the formation of Au-MgO composites by ion beam mixing are in particular discussed.
