  • Controlled Texturing of Aluminum Sheet for Solar Energy Applications 

    Ayieko, Charles Opiyo; Musembi, Robinson Juma; Ogacho, Alex Awuor; Aduda, Benard Odhiambo; Muthoka, Boniface Mutua; Jain, Pushpendra K. (Scientific Research Publishing Inc.,, 2015)
    Aluminum sheets were polished to reduce ruggedness and then textured in varying acid-ethanol concentration etchant to form pores. The textured surface was characterized structurally by using X-ray diffraction (XRD) which ...
  • Optical Characterization of TiO2-bound (CuFeMnO4) Absorber Paint for Solar Thermal Applications 

    Ayieko, C.O.; Musembi, R.J.; Ogacho, A.A.; Aduda, B.O.; Muthoka, B.M.; Jain, P.K. (Science and Education Publishing,, 2016)
    A composite thin film consisting of TiO2 (binder), uniformly mixed CuFeMnO4 paint (solar absorber) was coated on textured aluminum sheets by dip coating. The film’s elemental analysis was done using energy dispersive x-ray ...
