Synthesis and Deposition of Nanoparticles

The focus is on the synthesis of nanoparticles in the gas phase. The research area covers a fundamental understanding of the formation of nanoparticles in a gas phase as well as the technical realization of the synthesis, particle-size selection and deposition techniques including an up-scaling of such processes. There is a special interest in the combination of particle deposition with conventional thin film technologies, like sputtering or physical vapor deposition.
