Digital PVD process

Leaded by A. Besnard this thematic combine the PVD research topic (experimentations and simulations) with the Digital Engineering topic of the LISPEN.

The research goes in several direction, all related to one idea: the control on the PVD process.
One can found:
  • A Master thesis in collabotation with PRIMEO (joint Laboratory between the P' Institute and SAFRAN Electronics and Defense).
    The aim of the project is to reproduce numerically (with SRIM, SIMTRA and NASCAM) the experimental work already published by PRIMEO.
    The flux analyser software FLANBY developped by B. ROUX under the guidance of A. BESNARD is used.
    The project is actually running with the internship of N. Watiez (June to december 2020).
  • A MTI3D M1 project with R. LOU concerning a CAD tool for SIMTRA. Demo
  • A MTI3D M2 internship with Neyco on a PVD Chamber design tool.  Master Student: M. A. SANAA. Academic supervisors: A. BESNARD and F. DANGLADE. See more here.
  • Second year Arts et Metiers student projects (M1 level): since 4 academic years, A. BESNARD and R. LOU supervise student groups working on a Virtual Reality application for PVD deposition. See more here.
  • In partnership with the LARN (UNamur) and Innovative Coating Solutions (ICS) the M-Era. Net project VISCO is poposed for funding.
