This topic will focus on the recent advances in design and functionalisation of ceramic, metallic and polymeric materials, from nano to macroscopic structures.
This topic will include:
-Fundamentals of deposition processes, growth modeling, plasma-surface interactions and in situ diagnostics
-New deposition processes
-Nanostructured coatings
-Correlation of microstructure and functional properties
-Hard, wear and oxidation resistant coatings
-Characterization methods to determine the properties of the films in their conditions of use (high temperature, high pressure, irradiation, gaseous environment…)
-New materials in thin film form: high entropy alloys, oxynitrides, intermetallics…
-Design of novel thin films for energy conversion, save and storage
-Coatings for biological applications


Keywords: thin films, biomaterials, corrosion resistance, PVD techniques, wear and friction
