1 December 1991 Electrodeposited nickel-cobalt thin films for photothermal conversion of solar energy
Author Affiliations +
The development of electrodeposited selective nickel-cobalt black coating for solar thermal energy conversion is described. Optimized electrolyte composition and operating conditions are standardized by use of Hull cell. Ammonium acetate has been used as a complexing agent to produce quality black coating with good optical properties. The present system produces black coatings in the current density range from 4 to 8 A/dm2. Optimized coating possesses solar absorptance (varies direct as) of 0.96 and thermal emittance ((Epsilon) ) of 0.11.
