CPUT Energy Institute meets with Materials Research department

A meeting between Dr Mlungisi Nkosi and a delegation from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT)’s Energy Institute (EI) lead by Prof MTE Kahn, Director of the Institute (EI), took place on 16 September 2019 at the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering, CPUT. The purpose of the meeting was to explore and discuss projects by the two departments that could potentially share expertise and knowledge.

One of the proposed projects is aimed at fabricating cost effective selective solar absorbers (SSAs) coatings by depositing oxide thin films onto different substrates. The fabricated SSAs will be used to harvest the sunlight and convert it to heat for modular Solar Powered Aquaphonics.
