Abstract: The investigation and development of carbon-silica composites has been going on for some time. Different applications such as adsorbents, biosensors, templates and solar absorbers have emanated from these studies. The concept of using solar absorbing nanoparticles embedded in a dielectric matrix has been investigated both theoretically and experimentally by a number of authors. It appears that there is no comprehensive study of thin coatings of carbon-in-silica, especially for selective solar absorber applications
