Surface and Interfaces
The Surface Engineering group within AMRG has the expertise to address surface and interface issues from multi-disciplinary points, covering both fundamentals and engineering applications.
The research objectives range from surface and interface design in atomic and molecular level, to film/coating fabrication for the functionalisation and protection of engineering components, as well as the related microstructural analysis and coating performance evaluation in aggressive environments.
The group has the capabilities to provide surface/interface engineering solutions for various industrial sectors, such as aerospace, energy, automotive, and healthcare, etc., and state-of-the-art facilities are available to meet the different requirements, including physical vapour deposition (PVD), chemical vapour deposition (CVD), thermal spraying, electrochemistry, and wet-chemical process, etc.
