Special Issue "Thin Film Deposition and Characterization Techniques"
A special issue of Coatings (ISSN 2079-6412).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 December 2018).
Prof. Dr. Pascal Briois
FEMTO-ST, UMR CNRS 6174, Rue thierry Mieg 9010 Belfort, France
Tel. + 33-384-583-701
Interests: physical vapor deposition; fuel cell; catalytic properties
The aim of this Special Issue is to promote different thin film technologies for energy and environmental applications. Indeed, today, technological systems are becoming miniaturized and, therefore, surface treatments find a certain interest in various fields, such as electrochemistry, catalysis, and optics. Each article presented in this issue should include a part elaboration using thin film techniques and a dedicated part for the characterization of the films.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Fuel cells materials electrolyte, anode, cathode and/or complete cell,
- Gas sensors,
- Transparents conductive oxides
