In the frame of a project aimed at developing a new type of optical solar reflectors we present the scientific and technological issues addressed during irradiations of nano-hybrid coatings on polyimide films by using 20 keV electron beam from a modified use of Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and with ultraviolet (UV) dose equal to 300 space-equivalent Sun hours. Details of a new approach to use SEM for low energy electron irradiations and of a new UV irradiation setup are given.
