Nanostructured coatings for biofoiuling reduction of windows and canisters of oceanographic instruments

New nanostructured coatings and coating methods (PACVD plasma polymer and PDMS) for oceanographic instruments result in a bio fouling reduction of some 50%. Reduction of bio fouling will lead to an extended operational period between maintenance cruises to oceanographic monitoring sites. Fields and prototype testing proved the effectiveness of these coatings. Further introduction into manufacturing and application of oceanographic instruments is envisaged.
