EU SCIENTISTS DEVELOP NANOPATTERN DEPOSITION TECHNIQUES

A EUROPEAN Union (EU)-backed research project has developed new ways of applying patterns within deposited layers of nanoparticles that can be adjusted to create special properties such as super-waterproofing. Hungarian and Finnish researchers working for the CompNanoALD have developed atomic layer deposition (ALD) techniques, which can "deposit one atomic layer of a material at a time in a step-wise manner", said Dr Imre Miklós Szilágyi, of Budapest University of Technology and Economics, in a European Commission note.
