WELCOME to Center for Thermal Spray Research (CTSR)
The Center for Thermal Spray Research (CTSR) at Stony Brook University was established in 1996 through the NSF Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers program. Since its inception, the CTSR has been at the heart of a number of exciting fundamental sciences and applied engineering initiatives to enhance the scientific base of thermal spray (TS) coating technology.
Thermal Swing coatings for increased efficiency in internal combustion engines have been highly sought after by automotive researchers in the last half decade. Despite numerous theoretical investigations into ideal combinations of material properties for optimal performance in this application, little experimental work has been performed directed at producing such coatings. Work at CTSR has broadly investigated the feasibility of manufacturing thermal swing coatings through spray processes, with the effects of microstructure and deliberate process variation in key materials explored.
