Functional thin films were applied at many electronic devices and they included various research fields such as ferroelectric, transparent conductive oxide, and magnetic materials etc. Functional thin films were prepared using chemical vapor deposition, sputtering, pulsed laser deposition, and spin-coating. They were characterized through the typical characterization techniques such as XRD, SEM, AFM, TEM, AES, XPS, and SIMS. Recently, oxide thin films also were applied at dye-sensitized solar cells. Therefore, Oxide thin film sessions include various fields such as processing, characterization, and applications.
