- Pp. 131-152 (22)H. C. Vasconcelos, F. Lahoz, C. Pérez-Rodríguez and M. G. Meirelles
This chapter provides an overview of the employ of glass in solar energy devices, beginning with a introduction to the actual needs of energy followed by a review of some particular domains where glass is used in solar energy at present, or is emergent as an alternative for the future. Some physical parameters describing the optical and thermal characteristic of glass are introduced.
