S9: Thin Film Integration and Processing Science


Submit Your Abstract

This symposium will bring together researchers from academia, government labs, and industry to focus on the profound role of processing and integration science on structure-property relations in thin ceramic and epitaxial films. Of interest for this symposium are advances in thin film processes that enable integration with industrially relevant and scalable substrates, processing methods that facilitate epitaxy, and tailoring processing methods to achieve bulk-like responses in a thin film system. Specific materials systems discussed are intentionally broad in an effort to bridge communities (e.g. piezoelectrics and transparent conductors) for highest impact and knowledge sharing. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) integration of oxides with polymers, advanced substrate preparation methods, utilizing and controlling strain to enhance properties, achieving bulk-like properties in thin films, and advanced characterization that can guide material synthesis.

Proposed Session Topics

  • Novel substrate materials
  • Low temperature processing
  • Strain engineering for enhanced performance
  • Controlling growth morphology
  • Controlling phase assemblage
  • Advanced characterization

Session Organizers

  • Jon Ihlefeld, Sandia National Laboratories, USA
  • Brady Gibbons, Oregon State University, USA
  • Ron Polcawich, Army Research Laboratory, USA
  • Jon-Paul Maria, North Carolina State University, USA
