Three PhD candidates from LIST participated in the creation of a comic strip published by the University of Luxembourg: a way to learn how to communicate about their scientific field with enthusiasm and a sense of humour.
Kishor Acharya, Benjamin Dey and Vasu Prasad Prasadam aim to design new materials and study their properties. In their comic "From the Big Bang to the Lab", they talk about plasma and thin film technology.
LIST uses plasma to design superhydrophobic coatings to create water-repellent surfaces, flame-retardant coatings (which make combustible materials non-flammable) for polymers, or even for regenerative medicine. Scientists are also working on pulsed plasma technology in order to produce a bigger amount of energy, paving the way to new capacities and applications. This innovative technology could be of great interest to industrials facing the high roughness of 3D manufactured products.
