  • FCU GLORIA organized an international industry-academia event to promote an exchange of cutting edge surface technology between Taiwan & Europe
FCU GLORIA and MOST Center for Global Affairs and Science Engagement (GASE) hosted an event "2019 GASE Formosa + Global Expert - Cutting Edge Surface Technology of Euro – A Cross-Disciplinary & Cross-Generation Dialogue in Taiwan" in Feng Chia University

 
With the technological development and the growing trend of product individualization, many new surface technology processes is beginning to emerge.
In order to bring Taiwan's surface technology more in line with international practice, MOST Center for Global Affairs and Science Engagement (GASE) and (Feng Chia University (FCU) hosted an event "2019 GASE Formosa + Global Expert - Cutting Edge Surface Technology of Euro – A Cross-Disciplinary & Cross-Generation Dialogue in Taiwan" in FCU Gloria. The event featured three expert guests, Prof. Allan Matthews, Dr. David Thomas Allan Matthews and Prof. Jaroslav Vlček to share their expertise on the topic.
 
Prof. Allan Matthews, Director of BP International Centre for Advanced Materials, The University of Manchester, shared his expertise on the plasma-assisted PVD processes. The topic is "A Historical and Future Perspective on plasma-assisted PVD Processes for Tribological and Protective Coatings."
 
Prof. Matthews said that there are many waves of plasma assisted PVD development, ranging from the realization of metal protective coating by DC diode ion plating to the development of ceramic coating by enhanced plasma systems, and finally the further ion and vapor source developments and monitoring systems to meet the coating needs of specific products and applications. He also expressed that digitalization of processes and coating properties can meet the needs of modern Industry 4.0 demands
Dr. David Thomas Allan Matthews (Dave), associate professor of mechanics of solids surfaces and systems (MS3), University of Twente, talked about the "Laser Processing for Surface Design & Engineering". Discussing the trends of surface design for touch and surface design for antibacterial applications.
 
In Dr. Matthews talk, laser textures can change the surface structure and the characteristics, and several functional surfaces combined in a single texture require higher precision. For example, the hip joint implant need to have antibacterial, biocompatibility and mechanical surface properties. Future challenges in surface design will include Surface Visualization tools and enhanced modeling techniques for integration in Industrial processes.
 
Prof. Jaroslav Vlček, Head of Department of Physics, University of West Bohemia, shared his experience on the reactive HiPIMS deposition and the preparation of thermochromic VO2-based coatings. The topic is "Controlled reactive HIPiMS : Effective technique for low-temperature deposition of tunable oxynitrides and thermochromics oxides"
 
Prof. Vlček said that pulsed reactive gas (oxygen) flow control contributes to deposit highly optically transparent films, enhance the competitiveness of the optical industry. Take thermochromics smart windows as an example, the full range of energy-saving technologies is no longer a conceptual commodity, but actually enters our lives.

In order to elevate international academic exchange and enhance conversation on technology, "Cutting Edge Surface Technology of Euro – A Cross-Disciplinary & Cross-Generation Dialogue in Taiwan" invite experts and scholars to share their professional knowledge and experience, the lectures provide entrepreneurs, scholars, and students a gateway to the world’s latest trends.



The event featured three expert guests, Prof. Allan Matthews, Dr. David Thomas Allan Matthews, and Prof. Jaroslav Vlček, respectively, come from The University of Manchester (UK), the University of Twente (Netherlands), and the University of West Bohemia (Czech), to share their expertise on the surface technology
