Research Summary “Synthesis Process and Thermal Property Evaluation of Silica Insulation Material”
This project aims at development of refined material and process for the next-generation insulation products through fundamental research. Primarily, analysis of porous structures and evaluation of thermal conductivity properties are carried out, while developing analytical methods for thermal conductivity mechanisms and establishing continuous synthesis technology.
  • A person with Ph.D. (or expected to obtain one soon).
  • Knowledge and experience in synthetic chemistry, colloidal science are desirable.
  • Sufficient experiences in microstructural analysis using FIB, EBSD, and TEM, as well as particle size distribution evaluation.
  • Prior experience in optimizing chemical synthesis processes and evaluating heat transfer mechanisms in mesoporous materials is desirable.
  • Fluency in English is required.
  • Enthusiastic researchers who actively foster collaboration and engage in meanful discussions with the companies, universities, and domestic research institutions involved are welcomed.
