Project description

The goal of the project is to investigate the parameters which influence the ion conductivity of thin film solid state electrolytes. To deposit these thin films reactive magnetron sputtering will be used. This opens the possibility to produce thin films with a broad spectrum of properties. The ion conductivity will be investigated at the nanometer scale by the local impedance spectroscopy.
