Radiation Protection Material Featured in Upcoming NASA Webinar

Live Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at 2:00 PM (EST)

floating-ultrasonic-transducerNASA Langley Research Center has developed an innovative radiation shield made from shapeable fiber metal laminates.

This technology is lighter, thinner and made from hybrid carbon/metal fabric that can easily be integrated with resins to provide adhesion. The fabrication of this technology is based on the Z-grading method of layering metal materials which culminates in better performance and prolonged radiation protection than traditional radiation shielding for electrons and x-rays.

In addition to its spacecraft and satellite shielding applications, this invention can be used for radiation protective clothing, radioactive fluid piping shields, nuclear reactor shields, and other applications.

During this webinar, lead inventor, Dr. Laurence Thomsen will discuss this technology and its potential uses, followed by an open Q&A session.
