Transparent conducting oxides
UU perform research on transparent conducting oxides (TCO) and materials for optoelectronic device electrodes by modified reactive magnetron sputtering processes such as multilayer OMO structures (Fig. 3), and by combining nanopatterning (nanodots, nanorods, etc.) with TCO materials for making e.g. thermoelectric coatings.
