Welcome to Thin Film Physics

Brief overview

The Thin Film Physics Division conducts
application-inspired basic research on
thin films to fundamentally understand the
atomistic nature of materials properties and
behavior and learn how to make materials
perform better through new methods of
synthesis and processing. Our research
concerns design of new multifunctional
materials for hard and wear-resistant
coatings, energy materials, magnetic
materials, electronics, neutron-converting
materials for the ESS, wide-bandgap
semiconductors, and more. Results are
explored in collaboration with industry and
the properties of structures unique to thin
films form the basis for new and improved
materials and processes in applications.


The Division  is organized in seven units.
