HYCOAT is a European Training Network for Functional Hybrid Coatings by Molecular Layer Deposition, funded by the European Union in the framework of the H2020 Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions – Innovative Training Networks. A coordinated effort of 10 beneficiaries and 16 partner...Read more
The workshop on hybrid materials by ALD or MLD on January 23-25 in San Sebastian (Spain) aims at bringing together researchers and industry that are already active or intend to launch activities in this research field. It will serve as a presentation and discussion platform, hopefully sparking...Read more
Current commercial applications of ALD rely mostly on the inorganic materials. Future applications such as packaging materials, flexible electronics and membranes might benefit from the novel hybrid and functional polymers, especially when low deposition temperatures can be used. Despite the...Read more
Atomic-layer-deposition (ALD) in combination with molecular-layer-deposition (MLD), is a highly promising technique to produce inorganic-organic hybrid thin films with precisely controlled thickness over a multitude of different surface structures. The advantage of these hybrid layers is the...Read more
In-situ characterization of the calcination process of alucone films to obtain a porous alumina layers was investigated during a collaboration between CoCoon (Ghent University) and CINaM (Aix-Marseille Université-CNRS).
The alucone films were grown by Molecular Layer Deposition (MLD) on...Read more
