Aerogel for astronauts' safety

The human-crewed spacecraft Shenzhou XV's return capsule successfully landed at the Dongfeng Landing Ground at 6:33 a.m. on June 4; the astronauts Fei Junlong, Deng Qingming, and Zhang Lu were all released from the capsule safely and without incident, making the human-crewed mission of Shenzhou XV a complete success. Ordinary people are close to the space industry, and many space technology have been incorporated into their daily lives. For instance, the following tiny blue "jell".

Aerogel is a new material that plays an essential role in aerospace technology. It is very lightweight, much lighter than solid materials of the same volume, but with high thermal insulation and compression resistance. Therefore, in aerospace science and technology, aerogel can be applied to the Long March series of rockets, the Tianzhou series of spacecraft, the Tianwen-1 Mars Rover, and other spacecraft to carry out primary aerospace missions. With it, the space equipment can withstand the harsh environment of extreme cold and heat and complete the set tasks. It can be applied to the heat insulation of the high-temperature gas system of the engine; in the mission of Tianzhou No.1, it can be installed in the low-temperature locker as a vacuum heat insulation composite board, which builds a super refrigerator in the spacecraft. Aerogel composites are lightweight, environmentally friendly, and have adiabatic solid properties. Using aerogel composites to make spacesuits, under the premise of guaranteeing safety, can also lock temperature quickly, reduce weight significantly, and enhance the comfort of astronauts.

Aerogel is a cutting-edge material that is important to space research and technology. It has strong thermal insulation and defensive qualities that can shield astronauts and spacecraft because to its low density and high porosity. Many other sectors, including space science and technology, are expected to face new opportunities and problems as a result of the ongoing development and implementation of aerogel technology.

Aerogel has important uses in the military sector in addition to the aerospace sector. High-performance aerogel becomes the essential component to address the thermal protection issue when a hypersonic fighter jet is manoeuvring in a region of near space, where there would be intense friction with the atmosphere and a rise in temperature.

You-San aerogel is used in battery pack insulation to ensure the performance of the battery in a low-temperature environment and at the same time, it can save more valuable space for the battery pack with limited space. It has the advantages of low thermal conductivity, good heat preservation, Class A fireproofing, and lightweight. When battery cells experience thermal runaway, installing an aerogel heat insulating layer between battery packs can efficiently stop heat dispersion and avert dangerous mishaps.

Aerogel applications in lithium batteries

Aerogel is a new generation of energy-efficient thermal insulation material, a solid material with a nanoporous network structure filled with gaseous dispersion medium in the pores. It is also the lightest solid in the world. Due to its unique structure, aerogel has demonstrated excellent performance in many fields, such as thermal, acoustic, optical, electrical, and mechanical. Nowadays, the application of aerogel in lithium batteries has become more and more widespread. The material's superior thermal insulation and adsorption capabilities make it essential for battery design and manufacturing.

Aerogels are mainly used in battery positive and negative materials and electrolytes for lithium-ion batteries.

First off, aerogels can be utilized to prepare materials for battery cathodes. Aerogels can be added to the preparation of anode compounds precisely because of their excellent thermal insulation properties, preventing decomposition brought on by high temperatures, which is a risk factor in the chemical reaction of substances like oxides or phosphates. The battery's capacity and stability are enhanced as a result.

 

Second, aerogel can be employed to support and fill battery anode materials with conductivity. During the charging and discharging operation, graphite and other dangerous electrode materials are vulnerable to twisting and cracking, which reduces the battery's capacity and life. The conductivity and durability of negative electrode materials can be increased by using aerogel as a support and conductive filler material. Additionally, it can lessen graphite deformation and lengthen the battery's useful life.

Overall, aerogel is a novel type of material that is commonly employed in lithium batteries. Its distinctive structure has the potential to enhance the battery's stability, capacity, and life, and it is anticipated that it will become more and more crucial in the advancement and optimization of lithium batteries in the future. It is anticipated that further advancement and use of aerogel technology will foster innovation and growth in the lithium battery industry.
