The ceramic thin films are the materials those properties are strongly affected by interface. In this lecture, students study the oxide thin film technologies. In the first half, students will learn the basics of the thin film growth science, thin film growing technologies and their applications. In the latter half, students will learn the characterization technologies of the thin films and the electrical property measurements.
Students will acquire the following skills by taking this course.
1) Learn the basic science of thin film growth.
2) Acquire skills of film formation.
3) Learn analysis techniques for thin films.
4) Be able to design on their own desired film producing processes for oxidized thin films.
