Absorption coefficients in SolidWorks Thermal Simulation?

Dear users,

I have a problem with thermal analysis in Simulation Simulation.

For my components I can set in SolidWorks thermal propertries of material and radiation coefficient (surface emissivity). BUT, there is no chance to set an absorption coefficient of material (solar or/and IR absorptance). Does SolidWorks take into account this property of material in calculation? If yes - whether it is possible to set manually or just to see these values for components?

Thank you!
