Main focus is related to thin film coatings. Coating facility includes:
- ion-assisted electron-beam deposition;
- pulsed DC, DC and RF sputtering;
- 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.
