Transparent Conductive Oxides -
Fundamentals and Applications
The Leipzig born Karl Bädeker, grand-son of the founder of the Baedeker tour guides, reported 1907 in his Habilitationsschrift at Universität Leipzig the first transparent, conductive thin films, namely from cadmium oxide and copper iodide. He also achieved the first doping of semiconductors via variation of the iodine concentration in CuI. He was born 140 years ago in Leipzig.
Transparent materials are used for ohmic applications such as transparent contacts in displays and solar cells or electro-magnetic shielding. Also semiconducting transparent oxides for diodes and transistors have gained tremendous interest due to applications in transparent and flexible active electronics.
The TCO2017 meeting focuses on:
• theory of oxide electronic materials
• growth of bulk semiconducting oxides
• epitaxial oxide heterostructures
• metal-like n-type TCOs
• novel oxide semiconductors
• point defects in oxides
• oxide devices and applications
The TCO2017 will be extended by one day to host a special session of the INREP consortium (www.inrep.eu) developing alternatives to indium based transparent conductive electrodes. The conference fee of TCO2017 includes attendance of this additional session taking place on September 22nd at the TCO2017 conference venue.
The Best Poster Prizes are sponsored by .
The TCO2017 meeting is affiliated with IWGO 2017 (13-15 Sept. 2017, Parma, Italy)
