...G. Maag; C. Falter; A. Steinfeld Radiation heat transfer within a high-temperature solar cavity-receiver containing a windowed aperture exposed to concentrated solar radiation is solved using the gray-band approximated radiosity method for semitransparent enclosures. Spectrally selective quartz...

.... The internally circulating fluidized bed of NiFe 2 O 4 / m -ZrO 2 particles is directly heated by solar-simulated Xe light irradiation through a transparent quartz window mounted on top of the reactor. A sun simulator with three Xe lamps at laboratory scale has been newly installed in our laboratory for testing...
