Paper Abstract

A laboratory bidirectional reflectometer and a field. portable reilectometer have been used to determine' the effects, of environmental exposure and consequent dust buildup on the reflectance of mirrors located. in the heliostat field of the Central Receiver Test, Facility (CRTF). Surprisingly low rates of reflectance degradation have been observed in 64 weeks of sample mirror exposure and in two and one-half years of CF heliostat exposure,
