Paper Abstract

Bulk intrinsically selective absorbers are interesting for solar energy applications as a replacement for more complex thickness sensitive coatings. However, research in this field has not been very fruitful so far. Only ZrB2 has proven to be a good candidate material. For this reason, the development of bulk intrinsic absorbers has received relatively little attention during the last decade. Materials which have hardly been studied so far in relation to solar energy conversion are the transition metal (TM) alloys. In this paper, we will show that some of these alloys have interesting optical properties, which makes them potential candidates for application as intrinsic absorbers.
