Thin Film Materials Technology book cover

Thin Film Materials Technology

Sputtering of Compound Materials

An invaluable resource for industrial science and engineering newcomers to sputter deposition technology in thin film production applications, this book is rich in coverage of both historical developments and the newest experimental and technological information about ceramic thin films, a key technology for nano-materials in high-speed information applications and large-area functional coating such as automotive or decorative painting of plastic parts, among other topics. In seven concise chapters, the book thoroughly reviews basic thin film technology and deposition processes, sputtering processes, structural control of compound thin films, and microfabrication by sputtering.

Scientists, engineers, graduate students in the fields of semiconductors, thin films, energy, environment, automotive, medical and food packaging.
