About Manastu Space Technologies
We believe that due to limited resources on the planet, there is a need to look out for an alternative to solve our problems and that another side is the space. This option is viable only if we have low cost and sustainable access to space. Manastu Space is working with the exact vision of reducing the cost of access to space. At Manastu Space Technologies we are working on the concept of monopropellant thruster based on hydrogen peroxide: 30% higher specific impulse and 40 times less toxic (non-carcinogenic) as compared to regular hydrazine-based mono-propellant thrusters, which can hence be a potential green alternative to the current monopropellant propulsion technology. The key areas in which we are currently working on the development of a high-temperature catalyst bed that goes into the combustion chamber and facilitates combustion. The catalyst development entails the development of high-temperature ceramics, coating of ceramic with active metal nanoparticles.
About the internship
One of the key components in the propulsion system is the heterogeneous catalyst which sits inside the combustion chamber and facilitates combustion. Due to this the catalyst has to face very high temperature and pressure conditions leading to its failure. This catalyst typically consists of a metal-coated ceramic.

Selected intern's day-to-day responsibilities include:

1. Working on characterization of new materials using the following techniques -
a. SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy)/TEM for analysis of surface morphology and nanoparticles size measurement
b. XRD (X-Ray Powder Diffraction) - for analysis of phase qualitatively and quantitatively
c. BET Measurement - analysis of porosity, BET surface area, etc.
d. ICP- AES - For elemental analysis of new materials
2. Planning and synthesis of ceramic materials using techniques like sol-gel, co-precipitations, etc.
