Technology Improvements to Optical Solar Reflectors 932121
The thermo-optical properties of optical solar reflectors (OSRs) can be modified by thin films. Development activity has produced a mirror with a solar absorptance of 0.04. The UV reflector has also been combined with a conductive layer for electrostatic discharge resistance, and functions over a range of solar flux incidence angles. This paper will provide an update on work that has been carried out.
