Most notable was however the [...]
Atomic layer deposition (ALD) is a vapor phase technique used to deposit thin films onto a substrate. The process of ALD involves the surface of a substrate being exposed to alternating precursors, which do not overlap but instead are introduced sequentially. In each alternate pulse, the precursor molecule reacts with the surface in a self-limiting [...]
Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are rechargeable batteries, in which the lithium ions travel between electrodes (i.e. a cathode and an anode) in each charge-discharge cycle. These electrodes are important components in the Li-ion battery, but they eventually lose effectiveness due to Lithium ions becoming trapped or otherwise unusable, which is exacerbated by high temperatures and abusive [...]
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 [...]
