Efficient Environmental-Friendly Electro-Ceramics Coating Technology and Synthesis

Objective

Ceramic functional layered coatings are strongly required for innovations in communication, electronic and energy technology and in catalysis. The potential of these ceramic coating materials is based on their manifold special material properties. This project proposes an alternative synthesis of the layers based on the chemical solution deposition (CSD) process at ambient pressure. Main advantages are the lower investment, the faster deposition with higher yield and the processing under ambient pressure enabling a complete continuous processing. The general scopes of this project will be: - to introduce flexible and cost effective production systems - to implement innovative synthesis pathways and soft chemistry to avoid excessive energy input and to produce the materials in semi-custom device manufacturing - to shorten the number of reaction steps by using ‘clever pathways’ during technological processing - To enable an environmentally friendly process by promoting water as the preferred medium and avoid the release of toxic gases These goals will be implemented in the process steps : - chemical formulation: avoid hazardous precursors by promoting water as the preferred precursor - CSD coating deposition: qualification of innovative deposition techniques based on modified ink-jet printing (electro-magnetic assisted and solution plasma spray assisted - Processing: using ‘in situ’ modifications as electromagnetic or thermal activation to realise a more efficient process - Transfer: Optimised scaling up in view of specific industrial applications based on the protocols optimised in previous sections. - ‘in-situ and ex-situ’ characterisation. To reach these challenging goals the consortium consists of research institutes with complementary expertise in synthesis and solution deposition and innovative industrial partners active in different types of electro-ceramic thin film production, thus ensuring a broad exploitation with high impact in Europe
