  1. 1. Metal Films for Printed Electronics : Ink-substrate Interactions and Sintering

    Author : Thomas Öhlund; Håkan Olin; Hans-Erik Nilsson; Mattias Andersson; Patrick Gane; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; inkjet printing; silver nanoparticles; paper; flexible substrates; sintering; printed electronics; IPL sintering; flash sintering; copper films; coatings; thin films; AgNP; conductive films; metal films;

    Abstract : A new manufacturing paradigm may lower the cost and environmental impact of existing products, as well as enable completely new products. Large scale, roll-to-roll manufacturing of flexible electronics and other functionality has great potential. READ MORE

  2. 2. Metal Oxide Thin Films and Nanostructures Made by ALD

    Author : Mårten Rooth; Anders Hårsta; Jan-Otto Carlsson; Lauri Niinisö; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Inorganic chemistry; Atomic layer deposition; Metal oxide; Nanostructures; Template deposition; Thin films; Oorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : Thin films of cobalt oxide, iron oxide and niobium oxide, and nanostructured thin films of iron oxide, titanium oxide and multilayered iron oxide/titanium oxide have been deposited by Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD). The metal oxides were grown using the precursor combinations CoI2/O2, Fe(Cp)2/O2, NbI5/O2 and TiI4/H2O. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thin metal films on weakly-interacting substrates : Nanoscale growth dynamics, stress generation, and morphology manipulation

    Author : Andreas Jamnig; Kostas Sarakinos; Gregory Abadias; Gregory Thompson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Thin films; magnetron sputter-deposition; in situ and real-time characterization; early film growth stages; residual stress; manipulation of morphology; Couches minces; pulvérisation magnétron; caractérisation in situ en temps réel; premiers stades de croissance; contraintes résiduelles; manipulation de morphologie;

    Abstract : Vapor-based growth of thin metal films with controlled morphology on weakly-interacting substrates (WIS), including oxides and van der Waals materials, is essential for the fabrication of multifunctional metal contacts in a wide array of optoelectronic devices. Achieving this entails a great challenge, since weak film/substrate interactions yield a pronounced and uncontrolled 3D morphology. READ MORE

  4. 4. Electronic Properties of Metal Oxide Films Studied by Core Level Spectroscopy

    Author : Jan Hinnerk Richter; Anders Sandell; Håkan Rensmo; Anne Borg; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : In this dissertation core level electron spectroscopy has been employed to study various aspects of metal oxide films grown under ultra-high vacuum conditions. Studies on in situ ion insertion of lithium into thin TiO2 systems were performed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Transition Metal Nitrides : Alloy Design and Surface Transport Properties using Ab-initio and Classical Computational Methods

    Author : Davide G. Sangiovanni; Valeriu Chirita; Lars Hultman; Paul Mayrhofer; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Enhanced toughness in brittle ceramic materials, such as transition metal nitrides (TMN), is achieved by optimizing the occupancy of shear-sensitive metallic electronic-states. This is the major result of my theoretical research, aimed to solve an inherent long-standing problem for hard ceramic protective coatings: brittleness. READ MORE
