[D S Ginley;]. @article{osti_, title = {Thin film device applications}, author = {Chopra, K.L. and Kaur, I.}, abstractNote = {This book discusses the use of two-dimensional materials (created ab initio by the condensation of atoms, molecules, or ions) in such areas as optics, electro-optics, microelectronics, magnetics, quantum engineering, surface engineering, and thermal detection. Thin film technology shows the potential to open a technological route for competing with conventional power generation especially for photovoltaic application. Thin films of . The content of the book has been divided into two sections: (a) the first section (Chapter 1 to Chapter 3) has been prepared for the readers from a range of disciplines (e.g. electrical, chemical, chemistry, physics) trying to get an insight into use of sputtered films in various devices (e.g. semiconductor, display, photovoltaic, data storage.

This book is focused on recent advances in the development of thin films for photovoltaic applications, TiO2/WO3 bi-layers for applications with enhanced photo-catalytic properties, nanometer oxide and hydroxide films for anticorrosive coatings, surface passivation in chemical industries, micro- and nanoelectronics, trilayers of metglas and lead free piezoelectrics for . Publisher Summary. This chapter discusses the pulsed laser deposition (PLD) of zinc oxide (ZnO). ZnO exhibits an interesting combination of multifunctional properties, including optical, semiconducting, piezoelectric, electrooptic, and optoelectronic properties, and in thin film form, ZnO films find immense applications in many electronic devices including sensors, actuators, . Thin-film solar cell, type of device that is designed to convert light energy into electrical energy (through the photovoltaic effect) and is composed of micron-thick photon-absorbing material layers deposited over a flexible -film solar cells were originally introduced in the s by researchers at the Institute of Energy Conversion at the University of Delaware in the . A thin film is a layer of material ranging from fractions of a nanometer to several micrometers in thickness. The controlled synthesis of materials as thin films (a process referred to as deposition) is a fundamental step in many applications. A familiar example is the household mirror, which typically has a thin metal coating on the back of a sheet of glass to form a reflective interface.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collect and share the latest progress in terms of properties, fabrication processes, mechanisms, and applications of this broad variety of thin films for PV (active layers, supportive layers, and external coatings) in all the technologies under investigation and development. 2.A Applications of Thin Films Although the study of thin film phenomena dates back well over a century, it is really only over the last four decades that they have been used to a significant extent in practical situations. The requirement of micro miniaturization made the use of thin and thick films virtually imperative. This book is focused on recent advances in the development of thin films for photovoltaic applications, TiO2/WO3 bi-layers for applications with enhanced photo-catalytic properties, nanometer oxide and hydroxide films for anticorrosive coatings, surface passivation in chemical industries, micro- and nanoelectronics, trilayers of metglas and lead free piezoelectrics for Format: Hardcover.
