Research Overview
Main focus is related to thin film coatings.  Coating facility includes:

  1. ion-assisted electron-beam deposition;
  2. pulsed DC, DC and RF sputtering;
  3. RF plasma aerosol mist deposition.

Thin film materials include oxides and nitrides.  Substrate materials are single crystals, ceramics and glass.  Substrate shapes can be flat, cylindrical and wire-like.  

Current and Recent Projects
Nitride and oxide thin films for anti-corrosion applications

  • Ion-assisted electron beam deposition of oxide films.
  • Pulsed DC sputtering of nitride films.
  • RF plasma aerosol mist deposition of oxides.
