Insulation Chemistry on Earth and Beyond: Polyimide and Polyamide Aerogels
July 14, 2016
Aerogels are low-density solids with nanoscale porosity which makes them of interest for a variety of aerospace applications including insulation for space suits, habitats and vehicles or as low dielectric substrates for lightweight antennas. This presentation will focus on NASA Glenn’s work in design and synthesis of strong durable aerogels that make these applications a reality.
What You Will Learn
