Selective black coatings are promising candidate for increasing the efficiency of solar collectors used in solar thermal devices such as solar water heater, solar cooker and solar drier systems. A variety of black coatings have been proposed and some of them are used industrially. This paper reports on the characteristics of electroplated black chromium-nickel alloy. The studies made indicate the suitability of this coating for high temperature applications, such as solar concentrators, where conventional black coating systems fail
