Latent thermal storage is promising for space applications because of its high storage density. In the present study, we investigated promising fluoride storage materials and their composites with porous media by heat flux differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Specially designed sample pans were used for the measurements of heat of fusion. A discussion is included on the supercooling and heat of fusion for LiF, LiF-CaF2, LiF-MgF2, and their composite materials with porous silicon carbide or carbon.
