Functional Coatings

Techniques for coating complex objects with atomic-level control over the deposit

Coating techniques such as atomic layer deposition offer the unique capability to coat complex, three-dimensional objects with precise, conformal layers. The Functional Coatings group focuses on applying atomic layer deposition techniques to applications such as: 

  • Microchannel plates
  • Photovoltaics
  • Lithium batteries
  • Lithography
  • Large Area Photodetectors
  • Solar absorber coatings
  • Oil cleanup
