Project: Advanced pulsed plasma processing tools for hard coatings

The 'AP3 - Hard' project will develop novel power supplies for pulse-enhanced magnetron sputtering, and coating systems that employ this technology in order to produce thin films that would otherwise not be possible or be more expensive. In particular, the power supplies and coating systems from the project will improve the economic and technical competitiveness of boride and nitride coatings from reactive sputtering.
