Advanced analytical methodes

Advanced analytics” is thus dedicated to determination of microstructure and physical and functional properties of coatings synthesized within process technology and coating development by a combination of micro- and macro- ex-situ and in-situ material characterization methods. The main focus of the activities will be concerned to establish multi-scale relations between the coating microstructure in terms of texture, morphology and interfaces and the physical and functional properties such as hardness, elastic properties, fracture toughness, stress state, wear and friction.
