Area of research :

Astronomy & Space Sciences

Focus area :

Nanomechanical Characterisation


Executive Summary :

The project aimed at developing and characterising the Vanadium oxide based variable emittance coatings that change effective emittance with respect to temperature and is useful for the thermal control of spacecraft that experiences variable thermal fluxes in-orbit. Under this project, the methodology to evaluate the Young? modulus and the nano-hardness required for Carbon-Carbon (C-C) composite materials in the focused area of fibre, matrix and fibre-matrix interface was developed.
