Abstract
The agglomeration of Ni, Cr, Pt, and Rh films heated in air is discussed. Films of Pt and Rh require -1000°C before agglomeration occurs, whereas films of Cr and Ni require from 300°C to 400°C. This suggests that selective surfaces employing Pt or Rh thermal infrared reflective layers may have a long lifetime at very high temperatures. One such Pt selective surface is briefly described.
