Abstract

We develop an angular dependent thermal emissivity model by using the directional radiation pattern of short dipole antennas randomly oriented on a surface to predict the maximally achievable equilibrium temperature of spectral selective solar light absorbers. Equilibrium temperatures of ideal spectral selective solar light absorbers are calculated with the new surface thermal emissivity model.
