Mirror exposure bench
The objective is to monitor the reflectivity of mirrors used in solar thermal technologies, in a real environment, namely a Mediterranean climate with salty atmosphere. 2 types of mirror samples are exposed (from 0.01 m2 to 0.25 m2) on South-oriented tilting frames. Monitoring of the reflectivity and visual inspection of the mirrors.
* Exposure frame, 4.5 m² surface area, South-oriented and tilting ;
1 monochromatic reflectometer, 660 nm
Solar resource measurement
Humidity, salinity and dirt measurements
Monitoring of the reflectivity of mirrors used in solar thermal technologies, in a real environment, namely a Mediterranean climate with salty atmosphere.
Aging - environment correlation.
Exposure and monitoring of the reflectivity of plane mirrors (Fresnel reflectors) and of all types of materials used in solar technology applications. Study of the impact of aging and dirt.
