The Thin Film Physics Division conducts application-inspired basic research on thin films to fundamentally understand the atomistic nature of materials properties and behaviour and learn how to make materials perform better through new methods of synthesis and processing. Our research concerns the design of new multifunctional materials for hard and wear-resistant coatings, energy materials, magnetic materials, electronics, neutron-converting materials for the ESS, wide-bandgap semiconductors, and more. Results are explored in collaboration with industry and the properties of structures unique to thin films form the basis for new and improved materials and processes in applications.
