Abstract: ABSTRACTDry powder and sol gel ceramic films were deposited using a Matrix Assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation Direct Write (MAPLE-DW) technique developed at NRL for optical and electrical device applications. The MAPLE-DW technique uses a high-energy focussed photon source in combination with a “ribbon” to fabricate materials onto a range of substrates at room temperature without material degradation. Two different classes of materials were processed in this research, (1) ceramic dry powder materials and (2) so…
