Improving materials processing capabilities is of fundamental importance to meeting the manufacturing requirements for the
next generation of materials. However, processing problems are increasingly more difficult as we seek to manufacture new
materials, achieve greater control over material microstructure, and meet stringent performance requirements. Our research
is focused on applying a controls based approach to enhancing materials processing capabilities. The results of our real-time
control for e-beam deposited optical coatings and plasma sprayed thermal barrier coatings and fuel cells will be discussed.
Optical coatings are an enabling technology for many important applications in telecommunications, defense, satellites, and
high energy lasers. Although electron beam vacuum deposition has been used to manufacture the majority of these coatings,
