Use environment of material
Generation of high-temperature plasmas results in the following factors leading to material deterioration. Every factor makes effects within an extremely short period of a few milliseconds:
- Large thermal shock: Up to tens of thousands ℃ (dropping to room temperature after a few milliseconds)
- Radiation of high-intensity ultraviolet rays: Approx. 1011 W/m2
Expected characteristics for the desired material
Proposed material should maintain the following characteristics even after several dozen of repetitive exposures to high-temperature plasmas as described above:
- Insulation: 1014 Ω·m or higher of volume resistivity
- Stiffness: No crack damages or significant deformation as bulk component
Although the client seeks highly durable materials as mentioned above, proven results are not mandatory for the proposed material at this stage. We welcome a wide variety of materials and processing technologies potentially to achieve the requirements via additional development of two years.
Anticipated Project Phases or Project Plan
The client will review submitted proposals and possibly ask clarifying questions before selecting the most suitable candidates for collaboration. The client will select the best candidate(s) through evaluations. During the selection process, the client may execute non-disclosure agreements (NDA) with selected respondent(s), seek further information disclosure, and discuss specific development targets or potential opportunities.
The client will execute necessary agreement(s) with the selected respondent(s) and move to the development phase. Specifics of any collaboration will be determined through consultation with the concerned parties.
