Vacuum processes  Wet processes  Coatings and applications  Nanostructured thin layers

This unit develops thin films on various substrates by different deposition methods, vacuum or wet processes. Metallic, semi-metallic and isolating mono and multi-layers are produced. Moreover metallic nanostructures (nanofibers, nanoparticles, etc.) and carbon nanostructures (nanotubes, graphene, etc.) are produced with conductive and electromagnetic properties. All types of coatings and surfaces are characterized by a wide range of equipment (morphology, roughness, hardness, wear resistance, conductivity, chemical analysis, transmittance, etc.


Based on the deposition processes of such coatings, the works developed by this unit can be split into:

On the other hand, in the following link the developments are arranged depending on:
