The authors investigated the changes in diffuse reflectance spectra (ρλ) within 0.32–2.1 μm and integral absorption coefficient (as) of solar irradiation for a zinc oxide powder-based coating. The latter was consequently irradiated with protons (E = 3 keV, F ≤ 1 × 1016 cm−2), solar spectrum quanta (5 eq. of solar irradiation, 1 h), electrons (E = 30 keV, F = 1 × 1016 cm−2), and—repetitively—solar spectrum quanta (5 eq. of solar irradiation, 1 h). Following the irradiation procedure, the decrease in absorption coefficient varied from 0.044 to 0.036 and from 0.062 to 0.04, respectively. Additionally, it was shown that the solar spectrum quanta did not significantly affect the coating pre-irradiated with protons or electrons and did not change the value of induced absorption in the visible region (the latter being caused by the absorption of intrinsic point defects of the zinc oxide crystal lattice). The absorption coefficient degradation decreased under solar spectrum quanta irradiation, which was determined by the decrease in the concentration of free electrons that absorbed in the near-infrared (near-IR) region. ρλ spectra were measured in high vacuum in situ. A post-irradiation transfer of a coating into the atmosphere leads not only to the complete recovery of its reflectance, but also to partial translucence in comparison with the non-irradiated state.
