The application of composite materials, ceramics, or carbon materials with molten salts to latent thermal energy storage in solar dynamic receivers has been investigated as a way to overcome various problems due to the physical properties of molten salts. In connection with realizing a sophisticated and advanced receiver, an attempt at developing carbon composite with molten fluorides has been made. The relevant materials production process and preliminary results of thermal analysis are described. High-temperature He-Xe experimental systems for receiver component evaluation are described. It is concluded that although a drastic improvement in the thermal performance of the receiver using the carbon/fluoride composite is likely and the materials developed enjoy a good mechanical stability, more detailed thermoanalytical evaluation on the materials must be carried out.
