Project Description

Ultralight Flexible Shielding Film for Extreme Heat and Radiation

The goal of this project is to develop ultralight flexible shielding film for extreme conditions, especially high temperature and space radiation during NASA missions. The shielding film consists of highly porous aerogel material reinforced by boron nitride nanofoam (BNNF) with unprecedented benefits including mechanical toughness, foldable/inflatable capability, extreme temperature stability, excellent thermal insulation and neutron radiation shielding.
