Microwave Assisted Modification and Coating of Carbon Materials
In this work, a fluidized bed process for microwave plasma assisted CVD of metals, metal carbides and metal nitrides on carbon and graphite materials is presented. Boron coated graphite produced in this reactor was found to show increased specific capacity and electrical conductivity compared to uncoated graphite when used as anode in lithium ion-battery. Parameters for uniform coating of carbon fibers with aluminum based ceramics were found for decomposition of trimethylaluminum precursor in a microwave plasma.
