Organic Dye Solar Thermal Structure

The organic dye hydroxy squarilium when applied as an antireflective coating on a metal provides a solar thermal structure useful above lOO degrees
C. Fig. 1 shows reflectance vs. wavelength for Sq OH on Al.

The thickness of the coating can be adjusted to provide antireflection just above the long wavelength cutoff, as shown in Fig. 2, for Sq OH on W.
