US Nanotechnology research and Development Plan
The US investment in nanotechnology is equivalent to the investment of Japan and EU countries. About 1/4 to 33% of all papers are published in this field, which is equivalent to the investment. The US Department of Defense’s (DOD) development and applications in naval and aeronautics are the most prominent.
Applications of nanotechnology in aerospace
The spacecraft spindle is coated with a nanocomposite material<br />
Four spacecrafts had their main shafts coated with a nanocomposite, a coating that was newly developed. Four years of operation had not resulted in any damage.
The nanostructured aluminium undergoes several plastic deformations, resulting in an ultrafine microstructure. A large number of grain boundary are formed due to an increase in dislocation densities. The grain size can be reduced to 150 nm using equal channel angular press (equal channel angle pressing).<br />
The material is further ground on a liquid Nitrogen roller compactor until the particle size is 30nm. This method is known as cryogenic compacting. This method is called cryogenic compaction.
Replace chrome hard plating with nano Co-P Plating
Nano CoP plating is a technology that was developed by the US Department of Defense. Nano Co-P is a coating that can match or surpass the performance of hard-chrome plating. This is similar to thin-density chrome layers. It has a surface that is agglomerate and does not have any pits, voids or micro-cracks. Originally used on landing gear, it’s now being used to coat engines and hydraulic cylinders. The Co-P Nano-Coating developed by lntegran has the following features:
The nanocrystalline CoP0.05mm coating proved superior to EHC or HVOF after 1000-hour exposure test.
Integran Nanometal coating composite dies may be used for molds. They can reduce costs, manufacturing cycles and mold weight.
The nanotechnology of aerospace
Its widespread use is beginning with the application of nanotechnology to carbon nanocomposite coated surfaces. The miniaturization and efficiency of electronic equipment and devices will reduce prices. Nanomaterials, on the other hand, can significantly reduce satellite launch costs by reducing the cost of the equipment. Nanotechnology is used in aerospace for a variety of reasons.
Space refractory materials, including solar sails. reflectors. living rooms.
Layered silica polymer such as container lining or living room.
Conductive surfaces such as EMI (Electronics) and ESD (Optics).
A powerful and low-energy shipboard computer system using a radhard-based computing technology.
The use of small sensors and instruments for analyzing and identifying unknown and changing backgrounds is a way to reduce the overall system.
Microspacecraft (nanorovers) and satellites with nanoelectronics or nanosensors equipped with labonachips to test in situ and detect life.
High-efficiency energy conversion material, cryogenic cooler material, and materials for pre-set sensor and compensation systems to guarantee reliability and safety.
Applications of nanotechnology to the automotive industry
In order to create hydrogen storage tanks, the automotive industry uses composite metal hydrides as well as carbon and Boron nitride nitride. Solar cells are coated with nanoparticles. Nanostructured magnetic materials have a saturation force twice that of conventional magnets. Wetchemicalroute has been used to make cheap solar panels that produce more power. By controlling the size and composition, new alloys are developed with outstanding properties.<br />
SolarCoating, a coating with nanoparticles uniformly distributed on the surface of a window pane is used. These nanoparticles are made of indium tin dioxide (ITO), Antimagnetic Tin Oxide(abbreviated ATO), Zinc Oxide(ZnO), Alumina and silver. ITO is a good material for window coatings, as it can be used in a variety of ways, including transparent antistatic coatings, solar-infrared radiation additives, and transparent conductive surfaces.
Use of nanotechnology for everyday products and consumables
Nano aerogel has excellent performance, can meet the functional requirements under various conditions, is translucent, has excellent heat insulation and noise reduction effect, and is a high-quality material for building and vehicle main window system (fenestrationsystem).
Nano-strength Copolymer Wool is composed of several chemically distinct segments. Their nature allows them to be assembled at a molecular level. They combine highly copolymerized, polymerized yarns in a highly repeatable manner. The result is an improved mechanical property, which does not damage the uniformity and processing of the base metal.<br />
This copolymer is used to ensure the safety and reliability for sensitive composite components, such as aircraft casings. This copolymer is used in many different areas, such as electrical equipment and sports equipment.<br />
