Produced sol–gel sources are perspective for application as a solution for cost reduction, novel technology optimization and development.
Sol–gel based sources. Produced in industrial application laboratory sol–gel based sources containing phosphorous or boron dopant are used for formation of solar cell p–n junction. This sol–gel application can be used as a solution of optimization and cost reduction for solar cell production.
Silica aerogels, their modified products and composites based on its derivate could be developed as a source for insulation applications.
Hydrophobic silica aerogel synthesis. Technology of silica aerogel synthesis was made in collaboration with partners from Sofia University (Sofiiski Universitet Sveti Kliment Ohridski, Sofia, Bulgaria) by improved subcritical drying method. A comparison of the insulating properties of the existing high–class insulation materials confirms that aerogel granules possess the best insulation properties at this time and could be applied to effective insulation for important details in a reverse Stirling engine.
Composite based on hydrophobic silica aerogels for industrial application. Developing the synthesis of silica aerogels new raw materials and composites were produced. Composite based on silica aerogel has developed as an advanced component for EPS (expanded polystyrene) treatment. The combination of produced composite based on silica aerogel with EPS guarantees insulation performance with compression-resistance, no health hazards for both the installer and the user, moisture-resistant, easy and quick to cut and fit and environmentally friendly.
