Abstract
TIAX will develop and implement an economical continuous solvathermal process for large scale production of narrowly dispersed pure ZnS nanopowders for use in ceramic IR transparent missile domes. The process will generate large quantities of metal sulfide nanoparticles with minimal degree of polydispersity meeting the Army specifications. This process will be achieved utilizing the TIAX proprietary continuous reactor technology, which allows for precise control over the nanoparticle size and size distribution and can be readily scaled in the manufacturing environment.
