Material which absorbs 99% UV,VIS,IR

A super Black material has been invented which is able to absorb 99% UV, VIS, IR radiation.


New 'super-black' material absorbs light across multiple wavelength bands
This close-up view (only about 0.03 inches wide) shows the internal structure of a carbon-nanotube coating that absorbs about 99 percent of the ultraviolet, visible, infrared, and far-infrared light that strikes it. A section of the coating, which was grown on smooth silicon, was purposely removed to show the tubes' vertical alignment. (Credit: Stephanie Getty, NASA Goddard)
