Plasma and thin films (PCM) group

The Plasmas and Thin Films team conducts research on the development of cold plasma processes. The research strategy uses other physico-chemical processes than plasmas alone: sol-gel, chemical desalloying. The activities are structured according to three research themes: etching, the deposition of thin layers and the deposition of nano-objects and nano-materials which are complemented by a transversal modelling theme. The research projects concern a wide range of sectors:
-micro- and nano-technology,
-coatings and surface treatments.

The detailed study of plasma/surface interaction mechanisms, the development of new plasma processes, the implementation of modelling in support of experimental activity and the optimisation of the synthesis of a material with a given property are at the heart of the team's activities.

The team collaborates with external partners who have the technological means of microfabrication for the integration of materials in a device.
