In July 2019 a fundamental research project funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) was launched. The project is focusing on the laser pyrolysis for the generation of precursor based ceramic coatings on low-melting substrates. Based on investigations on metal substrates with a low melting temperature, e.g. aluminum, the laser pyrolysis on plastic substrates will be investigated in a next very ambitious step. Besides the considerably lower thermal stability, the high expansion coefficient and the small thermal conductivity of polymers will be a major challenge for the process development. The project will be conducted in cooperation with the Department of Ceramic Materials Engineering at the University of Bayreuth. The duration of project is three years.
