Deposition Science and Technology

The Deposition Science and Technology Group (DSaT) performs research and development on the processing of metal and ceramic materials for both structural and functional applications. The group of about 7 staff members and 2 post-docs, interns, students, is part of the Materials Science & Technology Division at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).  The group has a long history in the processing of refractory metal and other high-temperature structural materials including intermetallic and ceramic materials.  The work of the Deposition Science and Technology Group has played important roles in applications from steel mills, foundries, and electric power transmission lines to light-weight automobiles and spacecraft power systems.
