Multicomponent thin films

Click to zoom in!

Development and synthesis of advanced multicomponent, multiphase and functionally-graded targets with high dense, uniform structure that exhibits the required mechanical, thermal and electrical properties needed for such technological materials. Our new functionally-graded materials (FGM) meet the technological requirements concerning a high level of toughness and thermoconductivity for targets
