Research > Polymer materials for solar applications

The research done in polymer materials for solar applications involves developing polymer heat exchangers for a range of applications with emphasis on the gas-to-gas and gas-to-liquid heat exchangers used in the transportation industry. The design and manufacturing of plastic heat exchangers poses several unique problems that must be solved before their benefits can be realized. Full abstracts are included below, along with links to presentations and publications.
