Thin films is an important field in materials science, electrical engineering, and applied solid-state physics. Advances in thin films during this century have enabled a wide range of technological breakthroughs in the fields of surface engineering, corrosion, energy generation and storage, microelectronics, computer manufacturing, and physical devices.
This Special Issue invites manuscripts on the synthesis, fabrication, processing, characterization, properties, and applications of thin films.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Synthesis and Fabrication
- Characterization and Applications
- Surfaces and Interfaces
- Nanomechanics of thin films
- Properties of thin films
- Thin film devices
