Project description

1. Developing a thermal and plasma-enhanced ALD process for deposition of metals on planar substrates.2. Developing two new techniques for ALD on powders based on new fluidization techniques, both at the University of Ghent and at Umicore.3. Evaluating both techniques on standard powders.4. Apply the techniques on specific test cases for Umicore.
