> Training session on advanced Sol-Gel Dipcoating - Paris - 7 November 2014

Events to come

SolGelWay organizes the 1st Dip-Coating Training Day with ACEdip on November 7th, 2014 in Paris.

You are a PhD Student and you want to take a lesson on Sol-Gel and to be well-trained on dip-coating ?
You usually use spin-coating or other and you want to know more on the extended possibilities of dip-coating ?
This training session is for you !

During this session participants will have a unique opportunity to learn how to use today’s most advanced dip-coating techniques to structure the desired surface properties.


The session will have two main parts :

Part  I  –  Theory - Animated  by David  Grosso  and  Cédric  Boissière
09:00  to  10:00 -  Sol-­‐Gel  Chemistry  adapted  to  films.
10:00  to  11:00 - Physical  and  chemical  principles  of  dip-­coating
11:00  to  12:30 - Approaches  for  specific  developments  in  dipcoating - Questions  /  Answers

12:30  to  14:00 - Lunch break and discussion

Part  II  –  Lab  training - Animated  by  Benjamin  Louis  and  Marco  Faustini
14:00  to  18:00 - lab training on the ACEdip Dip-coater (Acedip)
How  to  apply  a  coating  in  extreme  conditions  (for  aqueous,  su per-­‐diluted,  or  complex  colloidal  sols)
How  to  apply  a  porous  coating  and  achieve  a  control  over  the  porosity
How  to  apply  polymeric  coatings.
How  to  apply  multi­‐layer  coating.
How  to  control  the  coating  thickness  and  create  a  thickness  gradient.
How  to  control  the  refractive  index  of  a  coating


Price: €  1000  H.T.  per person

Due to limitations in facility, the training session will be reserved to the first 6 registered applicants.
