Even Though Thin Solid Films Have Found Tremendous Applications In Electronic, Optical And Other Industries The Basic Concepts About Them Have Often Been Taken Similar To Those Of The Bulk Materials From Which Films Are Prepared And These Need Not Be So. This Book Is Intended To Serve As A Guide To Students, Beginners And Research Workers Interested In This Field.The Basic Science Behind Thin Solid Films Has Been Described With Special Reference To Nucleation, Structures Of Films, Their Growth Process, Phase Transitions, Behaviour Of Films Under Electrical, Electromagnetic And Other Fields With Film Thickness, Temperatures Etc. Characteristic Behaviour Of Films, Different From Bulk, Can Often Be Related To Nearly Two-Dimensional Nature Of Films And Also To The Presence Of Factors Such As Surface States, Contact Potential, High Defect Concentration, Creation Of New Energy Levels, In-Homogeneities, Discontinuities Or Gaps, Etc. Which Are More Often Less Significant In Bulk Materials. Special Techniques Used For Measuring Thin Film Properties And Also Precautions To Be Taken Have Been Given In Details. This Book Also Includes Many Useful Relations Otherwise Scattered In Literatures And Also A Good Number Of References Though Not Complete But Relevant To The Topics Discussed.
This book, "Multilayer Thin Films-Versatile Applications for Materials Engineering", includes thirteen chapters related to the preparations, characterizations, and applications in the modern research of materials engineering. The evaluation of nanomaterials in the form of different shapes, sizes, and volumes needed for utilization in different kinds of gadgets and devices. Since the recently developed two-dimensional carbon materials are proving to be immensely important for new configurations in the miniature scale in the modern technology, it is imperative to innovate various atomic and molecular arrangements for the modifications of structural properties. Of late, graphene and graphene-related derivatives have been proven as the most versatile two-dimensional nanomaterials with superb mechanical, electrical, electronic, optical, and magnetic properties. To understand the in-depth technology, an effort has been made to explain the basics of nano dimensional materials. The importance of nano particles in various aspects of nano technology is clearly indicated. There is more than one chapter describing the use of nanomaterials as sensors. In this volume, an effort has been made to clarify the use of such materials from non-conductor to highly conducting species. It is expected that this book will be useful to the postgraduate and research students as this is a multidisciplinary subject.
Thin-film coatings are universal on optical components such as displays, lenses, mirrors, cameras, and windows and serve a variety of functions such as antireflection, high reflection, and spectral filtering. Designs can be as simple as a single-layer dielectric for antireflection effects or very complex with hundreds of layers for producing elaborate spectral filtering effects. Starting from basic principles of electromagnetics, design techniques are progressively introduced toward more intricate optical filter designs, numerical optimization techniques, and production methods, as well as emerging areas such as phase change materials and metal film optics. Worked examples, Python computer codes, and instructor problem sets are included. Key Features: Starting from the basic principles of electromagnetics, topics are built in a pedagogic manner toward intricate filter designs, numerical optimization and production methods. Discusses thin-film applications and design from simple single-layer effects to complex several-hundred-layer spectral filtering. Includes modern topics such as phase change materials and metal film optics. Includes worked examples, problem sets, and numerical examples with Python codes.
Functional oxides are used both as insulators and metallic conductors in key applications across all industrial sectors. This makes them attractive candidates in modern technology ? they make solar cells cheaper, computers more efficient and medical instrumentation more sensitive. Based on recent research, experts in the field describe novel materials, their properties and applications for energy systems, semiconductors, electronics, catalysts and thin films. This monograph is divided into 6 parts which allows the reader to find their topic of interest quickly and efficiently. * Magnetic Oxides * Dopants, Defects and Ferromagnetism in Metal Oxides * Ferroelectrics * Multiferroics * Interfaces and Magnetism * Devices and Applications This book is a valuable asset to materials scientists, solid state chemists, solid state physicists, as well as engineers in the electric and automotive industries.

This book, first published in 2002, provides an interdisciplinary discussion of magnetic and electronic films and the importance of new materials in magnetic data storage is underlined by the accelerating pace of areal density growth. It covers a wide range of novel materials with data- storage potential. In particular, new work on lithographically-defined nanostructures and nanowires shows exciting possibilities for the future, including patterned media and magnetic logic operations. New work on chemical methods to produce ferromagnetic particles less than 10nm in diameter, with extremely narrow size distributions, indicates promise. Presentations also reflect the growing interest in textural and microstructural control in thin-film technology. Materials systems in which links between crystallographic texture, microstructure and properties are studied including metal films, electronic films including ferroelectrics, and transparent conducting oxides. Presentations display a significant variation in the sophistication of texture-measurement techniques, depending on application and equipment availability. The technique of electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD is strongly featured.
