Description

Lab'InSight Surface Treatments & Solar Energy - Focus on the Photovoltaic Electricity Sector - 21.11.2013

Division of Bio & Soft Matter (BSMA) Institute of Condensed Matter and Nanosciences (IMCN) Université catholique de Louvain Watching the Lab’s video Prof. Alain M. Jonas Full professor Lab’Insight « Surface treatments & Solar energy » Brussels, Nov. 21, 2013 Brussels – 21st November 2013 1

Fields of expertise and industrial targets Fields of expertise • Treatments of surfaces, or deposition of organic coatings, to provide functional properties to surfaces • Advanced characterization of surfaces & films : microscopy, spectroscopy, reflectometry,… • Patterning Industrial applications fields • Examples of interacting companies : AGC, Baxter, Corning, EADS, IMEC, Ineos, L’Oréal, Solvay, Sonaca,… Brussels – 21st November 2013 2

One example among many applied research projects Self-cleaning anti-reflection coatings made by a water-based process Tailor micro- and nanoroughness Super-hydrophobicity Modify surface chemistry (hydrophobic) 3

One example among many applied research projects Self-cleaning anti-reflection coatings made by a water-based process Glass or metal Adhesion layer Glass beads : Tune roughness Fluorinated layer : Tune chemistry 4

One example among many applied research projects Self-cleaning anti-reflection coatings made by a water-based process Spraying aqueous solutions Dipping in aqueous bathes 5

One example among many applied research projects Self-cleaning anti-reflection coatings made by a water-based process 6

One example among many applied research projects Self-cleaning anti-reflection coatings made by a water-based process No coating Coated 7

Special equipments Characterization of surfaces → X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Secondary ion mass spectrometry → X-ray reflectometry, Spectroscopic ellipsometry, Contact angle,… → Electron microscopy, Atomic force microscopy (many modes) 8

Special equipments Modification of surfaces → Self-assembled (grafted or adsorbed) monolayers → Layer-by-layer assembly & multilayers → Polymer brushes → Dipping, spraying, spin-coating,… 9

Services provided to companies Examples → Analysis of surfaces and interfaces of samples → Short-term projects (less than 3 months) → Long-term projects (in-depth investigation of a problem; development of a solution;…) → Internships in lab for acquiring a specific expertise (on-demand) → Links to CerTech, a more service oriented research center which is part of a mixed research unit with BSMA.
