Multifunctional thin films and coatings with continuous composition gradients

Objective 5

It is intended to use thin films combinatory techniques in order to generate blocks of films with constant variations, thus, of a discrete composition. It shall be taken a rapid characterization of the liaison structure, compositions and layers periodicity and crystallinity. The blocks amplitude shall be increase even more through the variation of tasks of microestructural parameters for given compositions through deposition process parameter changes. Finally, mechanic performance of a wide variety of microstructures shall be characterised with the purpose of develop models processing-microestructure-properties.
