Micro-Nano Surface Functionalization of Materials and Thin Films for Optical Applications by Ramón Escobar-Galindo
English | PDF | 2021 | 89 Pages | ISBN : N/A | 25.2 MB
This book contains the articles collected for the Special Issue entitled Micro-Nano Surface Functionalization of Materials and Thin Films for Optical Applications in the journal Coatings (ISSN 2079-6412). These selected articles provide a meaningful overview of recent advances and concepts beyond the state-of-the-art regarding surface functionalization of materials and deposition of thin films to be used in optical applications. The aim was to cover all relevant aspects of the topic (simulation, design, fabrication, characterization and applications) with a special emphasis on non-conventional methods for surface modification of materials, combinations of mature fabrication routes with emerging technologies (i.e., additive manufacturing) and large-area fabrication concepts to pave the way to industrial utilization of the developed materials. This overview comprises the recent work of reputed scientists from Germany, Austria, Spain and India.
