Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

He studied materials science with a focus on thin film materials, focussing in his PhD on process equipment and design of room-temperature deposited coating. As post-doc, he was employed to scale up deposition process from laboratory to industrially useable process for industrial partners. During his work, he was focusing on: - coating materials: common coating metals, their nitrides, oxides and carbonitrides (Ti, Cr, Zr, Si, V, W, Al, TiAl, Ag, Au, Pd, Cu, Mn, DLC (C)) - coating processes: PVD like magnetron sputtering (RF, DC, pulsed), pulsed laser deposition, arc and electron beam evaporation, ion-assisted deposition ion pretreatment from plasma etching to ion beam etching and deposition PACVD (PECVD) plasma polymerization - coating characterization and coating properties: adhesion, thickness, optical appearance and opto-electronic properties, tribological properties (wear, friction), corrosion, biomedical properties (cell and protein adhesion, bacteria adhesion), gas permeation, etc. - coating application: tribology, biomedical (implants, medical devices), corrosion-protection, optics and opto-electronics, decoration, gas barriers, etc.
