Stealth coatings for aircraft

Abstract:
Though they are known for their radar-evading design it does not mean that stealth aircraft cannot be seen by the human eye. "In fact, some of these aircraft are made to fly relatively slowly and this makes them quite vulnerable to ground fire," said physicist Seamus 'Shay' Curran, head of the nanotechnology program at New Mexico State University.

"A lot of the coatings we are developing I hope we can commercialize, like anti-static coatings, thermal coatings and electromagnetic interference shields." The key to creating composites with such remarkable properties is nanotechnology, the ability to build materials an atom at a time, Curran said. "The real essence of it is control at the nanoscale."
