Plasma-based deposition of tailored functional surfaces

The aim of the project is to synthesize novel two- and three-dimensional nanomaterial systems on surfaces using a modular research platform. New pulsed plasma processes will be used for this purpose. By simultaneously measuring and controlling the properties of pulsed plasmas and growing thin films or nanocomposites, synthesis parameters are tested, adjusted and exploited to provide new tailored material systems for various applications. In particular, two material systems are investigated: (1) Switchable oxide layers, especially those which switch their electrical properties at low (cryo-)temperatures and (2) highly porous electrochemically active layers which are of interest in the field of energy conversion and storage.
