Project Description

The recipient will develop and test new sensor materials for harsh environments experienced in fossil energy systems.

Project Benefits

This project will develop and test new sensor materials for the harsh environments experienced in fossil energy systems. More accurate measurements of conditions in applications such as combustion monitoring in industrial power plants and high-temperature gas sensing for vehicle and aircraft engines will lead to lower overall operating costs.
