Synthesis and Thermocompression of Nanoporous Cu Films for Aircraft Electronic Module Efficiency
Laboratoire SIMaP - Grenoble
The PhD student will study the processing of nanoporous Cu free standing films using melt spinning and dealloying procedures with the main objectives of understanding and therefore controlling their thickness and porosity architecture (size and distribution). Concerning thermoforming, the PhD student will study, in situ, the thickness variation of the film as a function of the heating profile and the applied pressure, both in air and under neutral atmosphere to study the impact of copper oxidation. The analysis will be completed by microstructural observation and compared with constitutive models for the deformation of porous metallic materials.
