VISORSURFs main objective is the development of a hardware platform, the HyperSurface, whose electromagnetic behavior can be defined programmatically. The key-enablers are the metasurfaces, artificial materials whose electromagnetic properties depend on their internal structure. HyperSurfaces merge metamaterials with a network of miniaturized, custom electronic controllers, the nanonetwork. The na...

This project will investigate the next generation of materials and devices for latent heat thermal energy storage (LHTES) at ultra-high temperatures of up to 2000�C, which are well beyond todays maximum operation temperatures of ~1000�C. We will synthetize new phase change materials (PCMs) with latent heat in the range of 2-4 MJ/kg (an order of magnitude greater than that of typical salt-based...
