This is the final report describing work carried out to support Bureau of Mines research on solar energy convertors. The report describes the specular reflectance of zirconium carbonitride surface layers from room temperature to 700 deg c. Above 500 deg c permanent degradation of the surface layers occurred. The tests indicate the absorbers may be useful for solar energy conversion when appropriate stabilizing layers are utilized to avoid degradation.
