Magnetron sputtering has developed rapidly over the last twenty years, following the increasing industrial demand for high-quality functional films. Today, magnetron sputtering often outperforms other techniques used for the deposition of coatings of industrial interest.
A brief description about how thin films have found application in everyday life.
Thin film coatings has found applications in mirrors, microscopy, photo catalysis, photovoltaic, solar cells, switches, lenses, microelectronics, etc.Optical thin ﬁlms involves the interaction of electromagnetic radiation, at different wavelengths, with a deposited functional layer.
Wide set of processes which are used by industry to deposit thin films, with a wide range of compositions and purposes, over substrate with largely variable composition, taking advantage of a high-vacuum environment.
The role of thin films in corrosion protection.
