Bespoke Gold Foams via Xerogel Templating

Tyler Fears | 21-ERD-010

Executive Summary

In this project, we seek to develop a method for fabricating mid-density, nanoporous gold foams using a three-dimensional templating technique. This research will close a significant technological gap and provide a material that will be needed for future high-energy-density research at government laboratories, as well as being useful for high-throughput catalytic applications.
