  8. Robust FARADAYIC CNT Based Coating for Scattered Light Suppression

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: S2

    Space-borne instruments, such as telescope housings and baffles where stray light reduction is vital requires the reduction of the stray light from optical payloads. Low reflective coatings (with reflectivity of ~0.1% or less) in the broad spectral range (visible- near infrared) have to be developed. These black coatings should also withstand aggressive space environments and launch conditions wit ...
