Laser ablation ICP-MS, a new and advanced tool in Slovenia, will be used for the fabrication of several novel materials and in situ analysis of target plumes for deposition control. The novel materials fabricated will be i) nano-crystalline thin films for hydrogen storage in the framework of advancement of fuel cell technology and ii) high energy magnetic films for micro sensor applications. The dual purpose of the laser ablation ICP-MS instrument for pulsed-laser deposition (PLD) and diagnostics has not been recognized as yet but the fact that both novel materials may be fabricated at atmospheric pressure make this a challenging and exiting proposition with potentially new insights into deposition mechanisms and better control over film properties. We expect to increase the hydrogen storage capacity of present nano-crystalline thin films and develop a database relating the magnetic properties of high energy magnetic films to PLD parameters.
