Title: Plasma Polymers and Industrial Applications

Abstract: In our laboratories we have set several processes which can be used for industrial applications, ranging from corrosion protection of metals and vapor barrier properties of polymers, to nano structured polymers suitable for different industrial areas, such as low friction boats, anti-ice cables and plane wings, anti-reflective optical surfaces with self-cleaning or anti-fog features, cell culturing and tissue engineering. Other appealing nano materials which will be presented include nano-metal clusters in polymer matrices for applications ranging from catalysis and fuel cells to anti-bacterial coatings.
