Research Institution
This innovative SBIR Phase I proposal will develop new binder systems through the systematic investigations to tailor required unique performance properties and reliability through tailoring Nano-cluster chemistry. The efforts address a critical need of NASA which plans to undertake challenging missions in high radiation orbits for high power thermal management. This feasibility evaluation mainly proposed to fulfill the material and the knowledge gap, and to present concepts for the new class of binder material chemistries that are dielectrically engineered with required secondary emission properties. The proposed efforts also for first time investigate possible proton quenching concepts that can help also in mitigating proton damage. Thus, this timely proposal can fulfill the need of the multifunctional binder that has an excellent thermal shock performance and potential to improve the affordability. The phase I efforts will generate needed data to suggest the processing success windows and the efforts to carry out further optimization of the binder material system during the phase II efforts.
