The research deal with the Regional Project RAM-PVD. In particular, surface
characterization tools will be used to study films of metals and metal alloys
produced via PVD. Chemical analysis of surfaces will be achieved using
techniques including XPS, XRF and EDS in order to validate the PVD processes
adopted by the industrial partners of the project.
In parallel morphological and structural characterization of the deposits will
be performed by AFM and XRD in order to evaluate the roughness and micro/nano-
structuration, with the aim of validating the industrial samples from an
aesthetical and robustness. Furthermore, additional advanced analyses will be
eventually executed in order to evaluate the functional properties of the
To properly operate in this context an experience on the surface science
techniques and, in particular, on those mentioned above is mandatorily
