Summary on Grant Application Form
A network consisting intially of researchers from 21 UK academic groups, 5 UK industrial organisations and a government research agency will be formed in order to promote discussions and collaborative research into the applications of chemical vapour deposition (CVD) in the production of new or improved materials systems. The initial participants have been carefully selected in terms of their standing the field of CVD and/or materials science, in order to foster true collaboration between the disciplines in this area. By mutual consent, the topics to be examined will include the status of the MOCVD growth of III-V materials, the growth of other functional coatings e.g. thermochromics, sensors, ferroelectrics or protective films, preparation and use of nanoparticulates, the development of more energy efficient CVD processes, the production of novel heterogeneous catalyst systems, the production of novel 2D and 3D structures by CVD including photonics bandgap materials and the application of in-situ monitoring methods for the improved understanding of CVD processes and CVD process control. Funding will be used to promote communication and information exchange, visits to partners laboratories, student training groups, visits to growth/processing facilities via the industrial partners, conference attendance and the organisation of both national and international meetings/'round-robin' discussions.
