This book is a comprehensive overview of the major important areas of ceramic thin films and coatings. Twenty-one widely respected researchers survey the range of applications of ceramic films and coatings and the techniques used to prepare and characterize them. The book is directed toward potential users of the technology and will also provide a broad update for experts in the field. Ceramic films and coatings are active fields of research and widely used areas of technology. The relatively high hardness and inertness of ceramic materials make ceramic coatings of interest for protection of substrate materials against corrosion, oxidation and wear resistance. The electronic and optical properties of ceramics make these films and coatings important to many electronic and optical devices. The book presents a series of reviews of many of the most active and technically important areas of ceramic films and coatings. It is introduced by an overview of the uses and methods of preparation of ceramic films and coatings. Topics then surveyed include synthetic diamond thin films, high T(subscript c) superconducting films, sol-gel films, protective films for cutting tools, optical films, and electronic films. Also covered are recent advances in improving wear resistance by ion implantation, in providing corrosion resistance by enameling, and in providing thermal protection with plasma sprayed coatings. Major characterization techniques and their capabilities and limitations are also treated.

The broad field of thin film technology is based first of all on the film growth processes in general. The concepts of crystal structure and defects in crystalline thin films such as grain boundaries, dislocations and vacancies are examined. The general nature of film growth from atoms equilibrating with the service, through the initial stages of growth to film coalescence and zone models is also within the scope of this book as are evaporation, sputter deposition and chemical vapour deposition. Thin films are widely used in microelectronics, chemistry and a wide array of related fields. This book offers new research in this exploding field.

The Congress is documented in 10 volumes, each covering one symposium or a few related ones. In this case, the title of the book and the symposium are the same. The 22 papers cover deposition, surface modification, and characterization; protective coatings in oxidizing and harsh environments; and thin films and coatings for tribological and multifunctional applications. Among the specific topics are a comparison between conventional thermal treatment and excimer laser irradiation performed on alumina/PEEK composite coatings, oxidation behavior in thermal barrier coatings on copper substrates, and damping properties of hard coatings for engine applications.

Adhesion Aspects of Thin Films

This book chronicles the proceedings of the First International Symposium on Adhesion Aspects of Thin Films, held in Newark, New Jersey, October 28-29, 1999.

This book chronicles the proceedings of the First International Symposium on Adhesion Aspects of Thin Films, held in Newark, New Jersey, October 28-29, 1999. Films and coatings are used for a variety of purposes – decorative, protective, functional, etc. – in a host of applications. Irrespective of the intended function or application of a film or a coating, their adequate adhesion to the underlying substrates is of cardinal importance. Concomitantly, the need to understand the factors controlling adhesion and to tailor adhesion to a desired level is quite patent. This book contains a total of 16 papers, which were presented by researchers from academia, industry and other laboratories, and have been rigorously peer reviewed, suitably revised and properly edited before inclusion. The topics covered include: mechanisms, origin, evolution and measurement of stresses in thin films; surface stress effects on the intrinsic stress; various factors affecting stresses in thin films; delamination of coatings caused by residual stress; effects of surface treatments on the adhesion of metallic films; adhesion of CVD diamond to carbide cutting inserts; effect of carbon contaminant on adhesion of aluminum films; effect of interlayers on adhesion of ceramic coatings; effect of residual stress on adhesion and wear resistance of hard coatings; tribological properties of ceramic films; oxide layers as barrier coatings on a plastic substrate; adhesion aspects of organic coatings to metals; and adhesion of thin plasma polymerized fluorocarbon films. This book, providing a commentary on the current state of knowledge of adhesion of thin films, will be useful to anyone interested in thin films and will provide ideas on how to improve or tailor adhesion of a film or a coating for a given situation.
