A nano-scale coating is the application of nanostructures on particles to provide various benefits. Nano-scale coatings can make surfaces water-repellent, less susceptible to degradation, more energy efficient, etc., without detracting from the primary function of the underlying material. There are both liquid (Sol-Gel, Co-precipitation) and gas (CVD, MLD, ALD) phase processes that can be used [...]
