C-NiO was spray deposited on large scale aluminium substrate for use as cost-effective selective solar absorbers. These films were characterized structurally and optically. Absorptance of up to 0.8 calculated from UV/Vis spectrophotometry was achieved on these coatings. Their SEM images revealed pores while Raman revealed presence of predominantly graphite carbon.
