Maryland University is currently in the process of testing the irradiation of Epner Technology’s Laser Black coating on an aluminum substrate. The samples of our Laser Black UV-absorbing coating has finished the preliminary tests using low levels of irradiation (click link below for results). Larger doses will be used in the coming weeks. The data will be added to this page once it’s available. The University will also be undertaking measurements at NIST on the specular and diffuse reflectivity of Laser Black in the vacuum ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum. This measurement will require use of the NIST SURF III Synchrotron. The results of this measurement will also be made available.
