Here, we study the structural and optical properties of tetragonal β-tantalum-sputtered thin films both ex situ and when exposed to hydrogen, with a focus on optical hydrogen sensing applications. Using optical transmission measurements, out-of-plane and in-plane X-ray diffraction, and X-ray and neutron reflectometry, we show that thin film β...

The characterization of a wide range of luminescent thin films can be a long and tedious endeavor. With reactive combinatorial sputtering of multiple metal targets, it possible to fabricate thin films with a gradient in composition simply by not rotating the substrate. In this work, combinatorically sputtered thin films of Cr<sup>3+</sup> and...

We construct solutions to the stochastic thin-film equation with quadratic mobility and Stratonovich gradient noise in the physically relevant dimension d = 2 and allow in particular for solutions with non-full support. The construction relies on a Trotter–Kato time-splitting scheme, which was recently employed in d = 1. The additional...

Thin-film amorphous Silicon (a-Si) technology has been up and coming in recent years in order to achieve an efficiency comparable to crystalline Silicon (c-Si). Although the technology has existed for quite some time, it has not been researched as much as its crystalline counterpart, especially not in the hotspot reliability sector. The hotspot...

Thin film silicon solar cells are a type of photovoltaic technology with the advantage of having thin layers of silicon to generate electricity. Unlike traditional crystalline silicon solar cells, which use thick silicon wafers, thin-film silicon solar cells use amorphous silicon that can be made with much thinner layers of silicon. This allows...

Thin-film silicon technology creates electricity out of micrometer thick silicon absorber layers, which makes this technology less material heavy compared to classic crystalline technology. This advantage can be further exploited with the transition towards flexible thin-film technology, where the non-modular cost can be further reduced compared...

The exceptional mechanical properties of Polyether-ether-ketone(PEEK) polymers make them ideal candidates for interlayer toughening of carbon fibre/epoxy composites. Herein, ultra-thin PEEK films with a thickness of 8μm, 18μm and 25μm were used for interlayer toughening of an aerospace-grade carbon fibre/epoxy composite. The mode-I and mode...
