The importance of coatings in modern science and industry is great, and the system presented in this manuscript attempts to provide a method of creating high quality nanoparticle coatings with in situ sintering of nanoparticles. Dual regime nozzle creates close to optimum conditions for particle delivery and deposition and the addition of in situ thermally assisted coating makes it more productive. Preliminary results show systems uniform coating and in situ sintering capability.
