WEB Vapour synthesis of functional nanomaterialsThursday (24.09.2020) 14:30 - 15:00 Z: Special Symposia I Part of:
Materials such as complex oxides (doped, quaternary, etc) and heterojunctions are finding wide application in fields such as solar devices, heterogenous catalysis and gas sensing, amongst numerous others. The controlled and reproducible synthesis of such materials are obviously therefore key to progress in these fields. Amongst competing synthesis technologies chemical vapour deposition techniques (CVD, ALD) allow reproducible synthesis of a wide range of thin and ultra-thin film materials, and nanomaterials, and provides direct integration of the functional material with a device platform. Here I will discuss the use of of vapour deposition for synthesis of functional gas sensing materials, and for interface engineering.
