The NanoPlaST project

NanoPlaST stands for Nanocomposite Plasma coatings for concentrated Solar Thermal energy conversion.

It is a collaborative project financed by the French National Agency for Research (ANR), from October 2019 to March 2024.

The aim of the project is to develop new nanocomposite absorber coatings for concentrated solar power systems generating heat and electricity. The coatings are synthesized by vacuum plasma techniques. The development includes durability studies in conditions of use.
