Abstract
This selective absorber consists of a number of thin layers on a supporting substrate, including a carbonaceous absorbing layer, a catalyst layer, and a metallic infrared reflecting layer. The catalyst layer serves to catalyze the pyrolysis of a carbon containing gaseous compound to form the carbonaceous layer. Under proper conditions, the layer is black, strongly bonded to the surface, and very thin.
