MIT STAR TEAM

STAR

The Solar Thermal Aerogel Receiver (STAR) MIT research team will present at Energy Night and demo how an aerogel solar thermal receiver can reach higher temperatures. STAR uses transparent silica aerogel to develop a new type of solar thermal receiver. Silica aerogel's low thermal conductivity combined with optical transparency allows sunlight to be efficiently converted to high temperature heat.


FLIGHT INFINITY
