The optical duality of tellurium nanoparticles for broadband solar energy harvesting and efficient photothermal conversion | Science Advances
Putting the tellurium nanoparticles directly in the water sounds like a bad plan for an industrial process, but this might lead to a better solid absorber for a thermal receiver?

Stanford scientists develop new type of solar structure that cools buildings in full sunlight
Weird passive panel cooling utilizing high reflectivity and spectrum gaps. Won't do you a lot of good if you are directly facing the heat source in question though...
