Paper Abstract

Inhomogeneous metal/dielectric films have been investigated for use as selective absorbers of solar energy. For solar energy conversion systems, the effectiveness of these films compares favorably with the best selective absorbers, but inhomogeneous films have a basic mechanical simplicity that could make automatic production both feasible and economical.
