Thinner is Better - Advances in Thin Film Coatings

Abstract:
With recent advances in engineering, thin film technology is playing an increasingly important role in spearheading technological advancements for future society. Aside from traditional applications, thin film technology is also closely tied to nanotechnology, which is one of the key technologies of the near future. Nanocomposite, nanophase or nanostructured bulk materials and coatings will become tomorrow's workhorse in new-generation manufacturing and precision engineering industries.
