This symposium focuses on cutting edge experimental, theoretical and manufacturing issues associated with advanced thin films and coatings deposition techniques and surface modification and functionalization processes. These processes allow the realisation of surfaces with enhanced properties and/or novel multi-functionality, thereby enabling them to meet present requirements and future challenges for more efficient, reliable, inexpensive and clean applications that serve the technological needs of our society. Of interest are materials systems based on oxide and non-oxide ceramics; new carbons; metal-ceramic, organic-ceramic and nano-composites; and hybrid and graded structures.

Focus will be on:
  • Advances in deposition, surface modification and nanostructuring techniques
  • Refined characterisation and properties at meso- to nanoscale
  • Protective coatings aimed at improving the often combined, thermal, chemical and mechanical degradation of components in corroding, oxidizing and generally harsh environments.
  • Thermal and Environmental barrier coatings (TBCs and EBCs) to increase the operating temperature of static and dynamic components in advanced gas turbines and in a number of other high temperature applications
  • State-of-the-art tribological thin films and coatings used in, for example, cutting tool and machining, medical devices, electronic displays, hard disks, optical coatings etc.
  • Smart and multifunctional thin films and coatings: self-cleaning, anti- microbial, anti-fouling, catalytic, electrically/magnetically/optically stimuli-responsive etc.
  • Multiscale materials and process modeling and simulation; data-base development for coatings
