Title: Plasmonic nanowire solar shades
Agency: DOD
Contract: W911QY-13-P-0001
Award Amount: $99,979.00
 

Abstract:

Solar shading is a cost-effective solution in expeditionary shelters for reducing fuel consumption for climate control. Current solar shades are known to typically fail by fabric tearing in the degraded material after one year of use. This short service life is dramatically less than that of shelters, supplies, and equipment that the shade is expected to cover. The proposed work is to develop a next generation multifunctional shade material with enhanced durability and other advantageous attributes. The proposed shade material consists of plasmonic nanowires dispersed in a polymer that offers enhanced elastic modulus and strength, and superior solar blockage.
