The second volume in the Handbook of Nanosctructured Thin Films and Coatings set, this book focuses on functional properties, including optical, electronic, and electrical properties, as well as related devices and applications. It explores the large-scale fabrication of functional thin films with nanoarchitecture via chemical routes, the fabrication and characterization of SiC nanostructured/nanocomposite films, and low-dimensional nanocomposite fabrication and applications. The book also presents the properties of sol-gel-derived nanostructured thin films, as well as silicon nanocrystals embedded in SiO2 matrix and amorphous SiO2 matrix. It concludes with chapters on controlled micro/nanostructured films and devices and thin film shape memory alloy for microsystem applications.
