Paper Abstract

More than 40 reflectance spectra in the range from 20 to 500 pm have been obtained of a variety of coatings, binders, and additives to identify promising components of an infrared-opaque coating for the Space Infrared Telescope Facility. Certain combinations of materials showed a specular reflectance below 0.1 throughout the spectral range measured.
