We report a new very interesting work that is demonstrating polymer thin films made by IJD. CTU’s researchers successfully grown coatings made of PMMA, PS and PVC starting from bulk pieces of material:

Reducing of the thickness of a polymeric layer under a certain threshold gives rise to interesting properties, difficult to be predicted and fundamentally different from those of the bulk material. For this reason polymer thin films have attracted great interest in research and industry due to the large potential in solving different technological problems.
