Deposition of organic and inorganic layers on polymer substrates by roll-to-roll coating in vacuum
The project will make use of our state-of-the art roll-to-roll polymer web coater to deposit under vacuum acrylate or other organic layers on polymer substrates, followed by evaporation or magnetron sputtering deposition of thin film inorganic layers such as metals or oxides. The resulting materials will then be characterized using a suite of methods. Possible applications include optical coatings, gas barrier films (often for electronics applications), or flexible electronics.
