Preparation of highly filled functional nanocomposites via gas phase deposition

Zwei Studenten und eine Tasse Kaffee

Typical deposition chamber for vapour phase co-deposition.

We mainly use the following techniques which explore self-organized formation of the metallic nanoparticles or nanostructure and are thus suitable for large area deposition:


We also apply kinetic Monte Carlo simulations and molecular dynamics to clarify and control the formation of the nanostructure. Based on early studies within the group, we now cooperate with Prof. Bonitz form theoretical physics in Kiel.
