The science and technology of high emissivity coatings for outer space radiator applications


The main goal of the project is to develop passive radiator technologies based on high emissivity and textured coatings exhibiting good thermal stability and resistance. The optimum recipes will be implemented by the industrial partner from the consortium using their large area deposition equipment and then tested as radiators for electronic components under outer space simulated conditions.

1. Designing of experimental setups

2. Synthesis, investigations and optimization of high emissivity coatings for outer space radiators operating at high temperatures

3. Enhancement of the emissive properties of substrates and/or coatings by surface structuring approaches

4. Fabrication of outer space radiators structures with improved emissivity
