  1. 1. Hollow Cathode Deposition of Thin Films

    Author : Lars-Erik Gustavsson; Ladislav Bárdoš; Hana Baránková; Claes Nender; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Electronics; Hollow cathode; Hybrid plasma; PVD; TiN films; Ferromagnetic substrates; Magnetized plasma; CrN films; Elektronik;

    Abstract : Thin films of metals and compounds have a very wide range of applications today. Many of the deposition methods used for the production of such films utilize plasma to support the growth the film, e.g. by the supply of energy and the enhancement of reactivity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nitride Thin Films for Thermoelectric Applications : Synthesis, Characterization and Theoretical Predictions

    Author : Mohammad Amin Gharavi; Per Eklund; Rickard Armiento; Björn Alling; Camille Pallier; Caterina Zanella; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Thermoelectrics is the reversible process which transforms a temperature gradient across a material into an external voltage through a phenomenon known as the Seebeck effect. This has resulted in niche applications such as solid-state cooling for electronic and optoelectronic devices which exclude the need for a coolant or any moving parts and long-lasting, maintenance-free radioisotope thermoelectric generators used for deep-space exploration.

  3. 3. Nanostructural design of transition metal nitride thin films

    Author : Torbjörn Joelsson; Ivan Petrov; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Early transition metal nitrides have found extensive use in a range of thin film applications. We are just beginning to understand their growth from vapor phase deposition and microstructure-property relationships. READ MORE

  4. 4. Design of Transition-Metal Nitride Thin Films for Thermoelectrics

    Author : Sit Kerdsongpanya; Per Eklund; Björn Alling; Gunilla Wingqvist; Lars Hultman; Daniel Gall; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Thermoelectric devices are one of the promising energy harvesting technologies, because of their ability to convert heat (temperature gradient) to electricity by the Seebeck effect. Furthermore, thermoelectric devices can be used for cooling or heating by the inverse effect (Peltier effect). READ MORE
