The purpose of this symposium is to provide an international forum for discussion and exchange of ideas on the up-to-date research and developments of processing and characterization of advanced thin films. The physical properties of thin films are critically dependent on the deposition conditions and post-treatment details therefore discern the correlations between the experimental conditions and film properties are of great interest for the field.The participants from various universities, industries and research laboratories are welcome to submit contributions for both oral and posters presentations to discuss recent advances, developments, field applications, and future challenges for the thin film technologies. The topics include, but are not limited to, every kind of thin films used in:

  • Energy applications
  • Protective coatings
  • Memory storage
  • Optoelectronic devices
  • Sensors and actuators
  • Biomedical applications.
