Layer-by-Layer Assembly of Nano-Composites

By Javier Canavati, Justin Lefevre, Neil Patel and Brett Perry


Final report of Team 25 of ME450, Fall 2008 semester.Professor Nicholas Kotov, from the University of Michigan, specializes in creating nanostructured films using a Layer-by-Layer (LBL) assembly process. The traditional method of producing these films is by routinely dipping a negatively charged substrate into charged polyelectrolyte solutions. Another method, also demonstrated in the lab, is the Spin Grower, which was created by a previous ME 450 team. This process reduces the assembly time because it applies the solution to a rapidly spinning substrate. This project is an effort to improve the capabilities of the Spin Grower
