Advanced Nanomaterials and Coatings by Thermal Spray focuses on the design, preparation, characterization and application of advanced coating materials for promising industries via thermal spray. Chapters introduce the potential applications of advanced nanocoating materials, the unique characteristics of thermal sprayed nanocoating, the design and processing of nanopowders, and discuss various nanocoating materials and their microstructure/properties. In addition, nanomaterials with unique characteristics are presented, i.e., the dendrite or feather-like nanomaterials by suspension spray or plasma spray-physical vapor deposition hybrid technology. This book will serve as an excellent resource for both researchers and individuals in industry.
