Molecular silver, palladium or iridium complexes are synthesized for the synthesis and transformation into intermetallic compounds by thermal treatment under reductive or oxidizing conditions. This will give access to thin films of intermetallics with the desired functional electronic or optical properties. Selection of the intermetallics will be carried out and close cooperation with the MPI. A project focuses on the manufacturing of thin films of intermetallics by liquid phase dipcoating or printing technology. The detailed phase analysis and measurement of physical properties will be carried out in cooperation with the MPI.
