Functional Thin Film Physics –
Commercialisation and Entrepreneurial Perspective

Functional thin films are core components within the majority of the technology that surrounds us. Thin films are a key enabling technology within numerous key sectors, including optical/sensing & imaging devices, aerospace, telecommunications, energy & energy storage, semiconductor, biomedical, etc.
Case studies are presented of functional thin film commercialisation relating to thin film deposition tools, processes and applications. The underlying functional thin film physics is described together with resulting intellectual property, market alignment and necessary steps for successful commercialisation.
 
The colloquium will be followed by a reception in the Common Room.
