The spectral selectivity and optical properties of a structured (multilayer) coating comprising an anodized porous Al2O3 film sequentially impregnated with zinc and nickel on an aluminium substrate were theoretically investigated employing the effective media concept and using the Maxwell Garnett and Bruggeman approaches to determine the dielectric constant of the constituent inhomogeneous layers. The best performance of this structured selective coating for solar energy applications is indicated for a porous Al2O3 film 0.135μm thick and zinc- and nickel- impregnated layers with thicknesses of 0.020 μcm and 0.005μm respectively.
