Paper Abstract

Black selective coatings of nickel, chrome and cobalt commercially produced by electrolytic deposition provide an enhanced operational efficiency of solar collectors as compared to those coated with ordinary black paint. High cost of production and elaborative experimental steps of the above process,however, offsets their use with respect to black paint on economic considerations. In view of this, in our laboratory efforts are being continuously made to develop techniques for depositing low cost and large area selective absorber films for photothermal applications of solar energy.
