The main subject of this project is in carbon films as CVD diamond, DLC, and carbon nanostructures. For this project we considered the good results of two other priori thematic projects within this same area. In this way, our focus will be on continuing and improving the projects now in progress at the National Institute for Space Research - INPE and in other institutions. This project will address the issues in question within a context of research focused on fundamentals and their applications and, also, including product developments that lead to innovation. The main emphasizes will be on: developing methods for CVD diamond deposition in polycrystalline form with micro and nano structure and single crystal growth; studying new methods to obtain interfaces for CVD-Diamond and Diamond-like Carbon (DLC), with improved properties on metal surfaces and; studying carbon nanotube (CNT), graphene oxide (GO), reduced graphene oxide (RGO) growth and their interactions in composite structures and as biological material. Further emphasis will be on the fundamental tribology studies as a characterization technique for industrial and space applications, on the electrochemical study with boron, nitrogen and sulfur doped CVD diamond, DLC, NTC, GO and RGO electrodes for energy storage applications, treatment of effluents and finally for electrical power thermionic conversion. Many previous results of our project group have opened new ways, which ensures continuity of fundamental research with clear opportunities for technology transfer to the productive sector with high potential for innovation, as has happened previously. The financial support needed is for acquisition of some new equipments, updates, materials and services for characterizations and for improving new reactors in studies with scientific and technological innovation. It is also to help on students' formation, and, also, aiming expansion of national and international cooperation. (AU)
