Supercritical Fluid Electrodeposition

This project is a large collaboration funded byan EPSRC Program Grant involving seven academics and approximately 20 researchers. It is focused on exploiting the unique properties of supercritical fluids to extend electrodeposition. Key aims are to deposit at high temperatures in excess of 250oC, highly reactive materials, e.g.Ge and Si, and into extreme nanpores with diameters less than 3nm. Prof. Smith is the deputy leader of the project and the group is responsible for thefunctional characterisation of all the materials produced and the production of the specialised high pressure systems required for supercritical fluid electrodeposition.
