A project group consisting of four institutes and funded by the DFG has started a new approach to investigate the complicated processes (phenomena) involved in thermal coating in order to control these methods and here especially the plasma spraying in a better way and to make use of them more efficiently. This approach starts from the desired quality of the layer to be produced and derives the required conditions and features of plasma and spray material prior to deposition to get this quality. To obtain well-defined interrelationships several modern and specially modified diagnostic methods have to be used and theoretical considerations performed as well. These and the state of the work are described. Paper text in German.
