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.
IJD demonstrates its flexibility also in this complex task allowing the formation of polymer thin film coatings simply by ablation of a piece of bulk material.
IJD based thin film deposition of PMMA, PS and PVC has been recently successfully performed at Czech Technical University:
