Controlled metal nanoparticle substrate deposition
NASA Langley Research Center, Office of Strategic Analysis, Communications, & Business Development, VA, United States
NASA Langley has developed and patented a new class of materials by depositing nanometer-sized metal or metal-oxide particles onto various surfaces without the use of reducing agents, solvents or other environmentally unfriendly chemicals. New hybrid materials will have applications in catalysis, structural composites, optics, and antenna manufacturing.
Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: The NASA nanoparticle deposition technology is a proven manufacturing method for applications such as a catalyst, and as a nano-material additive (eg. in polymers) and numerous other possible applications. It is low cost, rapid (seconds-minutes), scalable, and green since it does not require reducing agents or solvents.
