green house simulation / glass properties

I read somewhere (can't remember where) that flow simulation can use material transparent to radiations...

I would like to do the following :

- a solar radiation defined in general setting by direction and intensity: let's say 200 w/m²

- a "window" made of glass

- below this window there would be a   thin layer of silicium...


Solar radiations are supposed to travel trough the glass and heat my silicium layer. Then because of this greenhouse effect, one part of radiation is captured inside.


Can this be done with SW flow simulation??
