EPD NEWS FROM MADRID!!
The research group of Dr. B. Ferrari at the Institute for Ceramic and Glass (CSIC) in Madrid has proved the full yield of the EPD process for suspensions with solid loading as low as 1 g/L, as shown in the attached video. The suspensions are mixtures of Ni(OH)2 and carbon black (80/20 v/v) prepared in ethanol and deoinized water used in the fabrication of anodes for Li-Batteries (A. Caballero et al., Journal Power Sources, 238 (2013) 366). The elevated suspension stability and adequate conductivity lead to the complete deposition of the suspended powder. Related results are carefully described in the doctoral thesis of Dr. Sandra Cabanas-Polo “Ultrasound assisted synthesis of Ni-based nanostructures”, supervised by Dr. A.J. Sanchez-Herencia and Dr. B. Ferrari.
Mark Your Calendar!
Hernstein, Austria, October 5-10, 2014
The 5th International Conference on Electrophoretic Deposition (EPD 2014) will be held on October 5-10, 2014 in Hernstein (near Vienna), Austria. This conferences series is organised under sponsorship of Engineering Conferences International. Previous conferences were held in Canada (2002), Italy (2005), Japan (2008) and Mexico (2011). The "Mark your Calendar" announcement has just been published (http://www.engconfintl.org/14ae.html).
Welcome to the new webpage of the International Network on Electrophoretic Deposition
This website is hosted by Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Aldo R. Boccaccini at the Biomaterials Institute at the Univeristy of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany.
The idea of this page is to provide a platform to the EPD Worldwide´s community to keep in contact and to facilitate the comunicaion between its members.
