Course Objective Thin film coatings can offer important advantages in industrial and biomedical applications. Some of these advantages include corrosion/wear/scratch resistance, biochemical compatibility, antibacterial property, repelling and adsorption capability etc. Goods/components with these properties are regarded as highly profitable and may contribute to economic growth and human life standards.
The aim of this module is to provide an understanding of the methods and principles of micro and nano scale coating processes and associated materials and parameters.
Course Content Introduction to coating technology and nanoscale coatings; Physical vapour deposition (PVD) processes for nanocoatings; Discharges, plasmas, ion evaporation and ion sputtering; Hybrid PVD processes; Chemical vapour deposition (CVD) processes for nanaocaotings; Electrochemical and Electroless chemical nanocoating processes, Epitaxial films, Grain growth and microstructural control of nanocoatings; Structural characterization of nanocatings; Physical and mechanical properties of nanocoatings; Nanoscale multilayer coatings; Nanocomposite coatings;; Nanostructured coatings for industrial and biomedical applications;
