The theme of the meeting is to highlight areas where vacuum and the use of plasmas and ion beams are important (and often essential) ingredients in
industrial coating processes. Invited papers will be given illustrating the use of these techniques in different commercial fields. The meeting will bringtogether scientists and technologists with expertise in applying a plasma in vacuum to a wide spectrum of application areas with the aim of sharing knowledge, ideas and experiences.
This one-day session will include invited speakers and contributed papers in tutorial-level talks with up-dates on the latest coating methods and talks on new applications.
Professor J S Colligon, Manchester Metropolitan University: Effects of
Energy-assistance on coating microstructure.
Dr O B Malyshev, STFC Daresbury: PVD Coatings for Non-evaporable
