CarboSpace

The space industry consistently demands more lightweight materials with special structural properties such as high rigidity and optimal elasticity. Additional integrated functions, such as fatigue monitoring, are of great interest as well. In light of this, the work of the CarboSpace project focuses on improving individual special properties of duroplastic composite materials by integrating CNT, while optimizing the entire property profile of the materials with regard to mechanical, thermal, and fatigue characteristics. Optical structures made of the new composite materials ideally should also have a high level of dimensional stability. The new materials will be used in earth and sky observation missions, which are exposed to severe temperature fluctuations and spatial radiation.
