Abstract:

The objective of this project was to conduct research on multispectral coatings according to the following tasks 1 Scratch Resistant Self-Assembled Coatings SRSAC incorporating nanomaterials to create thin hard coatings that can be placed over existing camouflage coatings and on applique films 2 Highly Reflective Self-Assembled Coatings HRSAC utilizing dielectric stacks of materials tuned for high reflectance at 1064 nm and 3 Broadband Infrared Self-Assembled Coatings BISAC yielding high reflectance over a broader portion of the infrared spectrum. The coatings research efforts included 1 coating designs, 2 materials selection, 3 nanoparticle synthesis, 4 coating production, 5 optical property measurement, and 6 mechanical property measurement.
