The Leibniz Institute of Surface Modification (IOM), a partner in the GLADIATOR project, has published its work on the development of a process to efficiently make thin, compact titanium oxide films (for use as part of a transparent barrier to water vapour or oxygen) in a paper in the American Chemical Society’s Chemistry of Materials journal: Low-Temperature Photochemical Conversion of Organometallic Precursor Layers to Titanium(IV) Oxide Thin Films, DOI 10.1021/acs.chemmater.6b02757. A certain number of free e-prints of this article can be downloaded using the previous link.

IOM, within the GLADIATOR project, has been working on adapting barrier materials to be compatible with graphene electrodes, and on developing and testing methods of production of these materials that are suitable for large scale industrial application.
