Description of the thesis topic

The main objective of the thesis is to develop a process for the deposition of thin layers reinforced with nanoparticles. It is based on the skills of the LCC and LAPLACE in nanoparticle synthesis by organometallic voice and plasma processes.
Here, diamond-like thin films reinforced with zirconia nanoparticles will be researched. These nanoparticles meet many of the expectations of the aeronautics industry, and in particular of the thesis partner, Safran Tech. The optical, thermal barrier and tribological properties of these coatings will be particularly studied (for example, in the context of exchanges and projects between France and Quebec). These coatings must have long-lasting properties and develop a high resistance to friction and impact.

Work Context

The thesis will take place at the LCC and Laplace. It consists, on the one hand, in the development of zirconia nanoparticle synthesis pathways adapted to the reactor-injector and, on the other hand, in the implementation of these nanoparticles in a low-pressure plasma process. The objective is to define the conditions of use of the nanoparticle reactor-injector in low-pressure plasma. To do this, the PhD student will be able to draw on the expertise of his supervisors at the LCC, Laplace and Safran Tech.
