Paper Abstract

Oxidized copper surfaces have been prepared by chemical oxidation and their thermal stability has been investigated. Auger Electron Spectroscopy and optical reflectance measurements have been used to verify that the reduced solar absorption, that is the result of annealing, is due to a smoothing of the interface between the oxide layer and the base metal.
