Thin Film Coatings: Properties, Deposition, and Applications discusses the holistic subject of conventional and emerging thin film technologies without bias to a specific technology based on the existing literature. It covers properties and delves into the various methods of thin film deposition, including the most recent techniques and a direction for future developments. It also discusses the cutting-edge applications of thin film coatings such as self-healing and smart coatings, biomedical, hybrid, and scalable thin films. Finally, the concept of Industry 4.0 in thin film coating technology is examined.

This book:

Explores a wide range and is not specific to material and method of deposition

Demonstrates the application of thin film coatings in nearly all sectors, such as energy and anti-microbial applications

Details the preparation and properties of hybrid and scalable (ultra) thin materials for advanced applications

Provides detailed bibliometric analyses on applications of thin film coatings

Discusses Industry 4.0 and 3D printing in thin film technology

With its broad coverage, this comprehensive reference will appeal to a wide audience of materials scientists and engineers and others studying and developing advanced thin film technologies.
