Tutorial on Thin Film stability


Register for EMA 2015 today


The goal of this tutorial is to introduce the topics that will be discussed during the Basic Science Division Symposium, S11 “Thin Films: Stability, Stress Relaxation, and Properties”, held during EMA 2015. The level of the tutorial will be for researchers and students without extensive background in thin films and is designed to introduce the basic concepts, terminology and results in order to assist with interactions during the symposium. The specific issues for discussion will be selected based on titles of the invited talks, and the particular interest of the instructors. The issues for discussion include:


• Thin Film growth, microstructure, and stress
    – Epitaxial and textured films


• Thin Film stress relaxation
    – Dislocation mechanisms in thin films
    – Diffusion in thin films


• Thin Film properties
    – Size dependent plasticity
    – Thermal stresses
    – Fracture of thin films
