New Technology To Protect Spacecraft From Radiation To Be Developed At TPU

24.03.2015 13:50


Scientists of Tomsk Polytechnic University, together with colleagues from Belarusian State University are working on a nanocoating resistant to radiation, according to TASS. It can be used to protect spacecrafts from the radiation.

"The work is devoted to the method of formation of new radiation-resistant nanostructured and nanocomposite material that can be used as protective coatings in the nuclear, aerospace and other industries.

Preliminary studies have already conducted, the scientists have received experimental specimens of materials with coatings to improve the radiation resistance by optimizing the crystal architecture and defect structure,"- said Alexey Yakovlev, the director of the Institute of High Technology Physics, TPU.

The scientist drew an analogy with carbon that is the basis for both a simple pencil and a diamond.

"There is no difference in the molecules. The paradox lies in the crystal lattice: a stratified, when you write with a pencil, and the other lattice is so strong that it is the hardest material in nature. So we create technologies that allow for the same materials and formulations to obtain the required properties," - says Aleksey Yakovlev.

He said that now the research is carried out on thin coatings that allow us to achieve more quick scientific results. On the completion of the practical work, it will be possible to create an experimental unit for coating materials used in extreme conditions.
