Description

COURSE CONTENTS:

1. Introduction and short overview

2. Properties of Nano-Sized and Nano-Structured
Materials when approaching the molecular size
- Thermodynamics properties vs. crystallite size;
- Localization phenomena (electrons & phonons),
crystallite size and separation;
- Learning from the nature:
- super-hydrophobic, self-cleaning surfaces;
- "lotus effect" upside down;
- super-adhesive surfaces;
- design of high-specific strength & toughness;
- design of colors;

3. Structural bulk Nanocomposites:
- Graphite fibres carbon composites with high specific
strength
- Polymer-based nanocomposites reinforced by
inorganic fillers
- Future trends: carbon nanotube reinforced
nanocomposites

4. Functional Nano-structured coatings for machine
parts
- The role of the ratio of elastic modulus to hardness for
wear of machine parts;
- Self-lubricant hard nanocomposites for harsh and
variable environment (humid-dry, low-high
temperature etc.);
. Hard and wear-resistant coatings for tools

- Introduction: The recent search for super- and ultrahard
materials: Go Nano!
- Why coatings on tools ?
- Transition Metal Nitrides, Carbides & Borides
- Oxide Coatings
- Diamond and Diamond-Like Carbon - Based Coatings

6. Hard and Superhard Nanocomposites with high
thermal stability and oxidation resistance for
machining (drilling, milling, turning, forming, stamping)
and other applications.

6.1. Different approaches to superhard coatings, their
advantages and drawbacks:
- Intrinsically superhard materials
- Hardening by energetic ion bombardment
- Superhard Heterostructures
- Superhad nanocomposites by phase segregation:
Design concept, their preparation,
properties and recent progress in their understanding.

6.2. Industrial applications of hard and superhard
nanocomposites in comparison to other
advanced coatings including polycrystalline
diamond.

6.3. The presently available hard and superhard coatings
can still be significantly improved

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Peoples from academia and industry working in the area of nanostructured materials are encouraged to attend this course to deepen and widen their knowledge. In addition, the course is designed for those who would like to start to work in the challenging area of nanotechnology.
