Liquid Coating Technology Laboratory

The laboratory is equipped for developing liquid-based functional coatings for solar applications. The equipment enables the synthesis of solutions, vacuum-free deposition of thin films, and their consolidation.

Liquid Coating Technology Laboratory

Atmospheric-pressure plasma tool (FG 5001 plasma generator, Plasmatreat, Germany)

The novel ambient plasma treatment and coating system is able to realize plasma treatment on various substrates in ambient environment. The 3-axis robotic platform is able to treat a maximum sample size of 50 cm x 50 cm, while the versatile plasma jets are able to ionize gases for different surface treatment requirements. Thin film deposition is feasible through a pumping-evaporator system that supplies liquid or gaseous precursors to the jet heads.

Other equipments in the lab:

  • Spray coater
  • Dip coater
  • Spin coaters
  • Fume Hoods
  • Viscometer
  • Furnace
  • Rotary evaporator
  • Ultrasonic cleaner
