Researcher Andrew Hunt of the Georgia Institute of Technology synthesizes thin films by combustion chemical vapor deposition (CCVD), a technique he developed at Georgia Tech. Hunt founded MicroCoating Technologies Inc. to develop and commercialize the patented process. Materials researchers incorporate thin films into thermal barrier coatings, such as those used in land-based, power-generating gas turbines, to make them operate more efficiently. Improving the durability of thermal barrier coatings will help make them operate more efficiently, thus reducing the world's dependence on fossil fuels. (Year of image: 2000)
