Ceramic coatings for the solar probe plus mission
A study was conducted to develop the coatings needed to protect the Solar Probe Plus Thermal Protection System (TPS) from the harsh environment. The TPS encountered harsh environment during its mission close to the sun, facing significant solar fluxes. The first part of the study addressed the way a coating s microstructure affected its optical properties and the way coatings were designed to maintain the right microstructure over temperature. The study was led by a researcher from the Advanced Technology Laboratory of the W ...

Development of a high-temperature optical coating for thermal management on solar probe plus
NASA s Solar Probe Plus (SPP) is approaching within 9.5 solar radii from the center of the sun. The SPP thermal protection system (TPS) is a 2.7 meter heat shield. The heat shield reaches temperatures of 1400°C on its front surface, its worst thermal case, and is subjected to launch loads, its worst mechanical case. The front surface of the thermal protection system is coated with an optically white coating in order to reduce the front surface temperature of the TPS and reduce the resulting heat flow into the spacecraft. ...
