Advanced Nanomaterials for Aerospace Applications by Carlos R. Cabrera and Felix A. Miranda.
The book “Advanced Nanomaterials for Aerospace Applications” has been developed for a community interested in aerospace science and nanotechnology.
Scientists and engineers of the NASA-University Research Center for Advanced Nanoscale Materials (CANM) at the University of Puerto Rico and from the NASA John H. Glenn and Ames Research Centers, the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pennsylvania State University, and INFN-Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati, Italy, have joined eorts to present the applications of nanomaterials in sensors, atmosphere revitalization in habitable space platforms, life support systems, regenerative fuel cells, lithium-ion batteries, robust lightweight materials, nanoelectronics, and electromagnetic shielding.
The CANM at the University of Puerto Rico has been involved in the development of these exciting research areas in collaboration with NASA centers For Many Years and Most of the scientists and engineers who have been part of the CANM are authors or co-authors of the chapters in this Book.
➥Chapters 1 and 2 are devoted to sensor technology.
➥New sensor systems that can be enabled by nanotechnology are also discussed. Chapters 3 and 4 present the use of nanomaterials for life support system applications.
➥Chapter 5 discusses the performance advantages of dierent nanostructured electroactive materials, as compared to microstructured materials, for the negative electrodes (i.e., anodes) of lithium-ion batteries.
➥Chapter 6 complements Chapter 5 by discussing the advances in the design of high-energy cathode materials for rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.
➥Chapter 7 provides insights on the use of nanomaterials for enewable energy applications, in particular the development of nanomaterials used as catalysts for fuel cells and electrolyzers in regenerative fuel cell systems for NASA applications.
➥Chapters 8, 9, and 10 present other areas of nanotechnology relevant for aerospace applications.
➥Accordingly, Chapter 11 discusses nanotechnology educational components based on advanced nanomaterials for aerospace applications and the initiative implemented in this area as part of the CANM educational and outreach eorts.
➥Finally, Chapter 12 provides an overall NASA perspective on the future trends in nanotechnology and discusses initiatives and mechanisms currently in place to facilitate the advancement of research and technology development delineated by such trends.
