Interest in research projects from the field of solar thermal absorber coatings

What we offer:
Surface engineering performs high-level research with domestic and international research partners as well as with industry.
Although the main activities recently have concentrated in different aspects of thermal spraying, the scope of the laboratory covers processes from atomic and molecular deposition processes, such as CVD and PVD, to thermal spraying and laser cladding. The goal in activities is to understand the materials-processing-properties interrelations which are essential in advancing industrial applications of the coatings.
We want to find research projects from the field of solar thermal absorber coatings. We have experience of researching absorbers and several different methods to study thin films.

What are we looking for:
We are looking for research organisations and industrial partners for joint research projects.
Suitable partners are interested in modern applications of coatings in solar thermal collectors, for example behavior of the coatings in high temperatures.
