Optimizing a new spraying method for ceramic coatings

For a long time, the production of ceramic coatings has only been possible by means of sintering techniques conducted at more than 1,000 degrees Celsius. However, Powder Aerosol Deposition (PAD) enables their production at normal room temperatures. Engineering scientists from the University of Bayreuth show in the journal of ‘Advanced Materials’ how the functional properties of ceramic films can be optimized with regard to high-tech applications.
