DOE: Ultrahigh Temperature Impervious Materials Advancing Turbine Efficiency

The ULTIMATE Program seeks to fund the development and demonstration of ultrahigh temperature materials that can operate continuously at 1300 ºC in a standalone material test environment (or with coatings, enabling gas turbine inlet temperatures of 1800 ºC) or higher, targeting gas turbine applications in the power generation and aviation industries. The successful materials must be able to withstand not only the highest temperature in a turbine but also the extreme stresses of a turbine blade.

Deadline: June 5, 2020
