Study of the optical, electrical and corrosion resistance properties of AZO layers deposited by DC pulsed magnetron sputtering

Aluminium-doped zinc oxide (AZO) is a common material used as a front contact layer on chalcopyrite CuInGaSe2 (CIGS)-based thin-film solar cells since it combines optimum optical and electrical properties with low cost and abundant elemental availability.

The effect of doping elements and oil additives on the tribological performance of boundary-lubricated DLC/DLC contacts

In the past decade the range of possible applications for diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings has changed significantly: from their conventional use in low-stress applications without lubricants, to their use in high-stress applications under lubricated conditions.
