Thin-Film Coatings

Thin-film coatings are layers of material applied to the surface of an object or substrate, typically to modify its optical, electrical, or mechanical properties. These coatings are composed of thin layers of materials, often just a few nanometers to micrometers thick, deposited onto a substrate using various techniques such as physical vapor deposition, chemical vapor deposition, sputtering, or thermal evaporation.
