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 died one hundred years ago in WWI in the battle around Liége.

Scientific Scope
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 TCO2014 meeting focuses on:

• theory of oxide electronic materials
• growth of bulk semiconducting oxides
• amorphous oxide thin films
• metal-like n-type TCOs
• p-type oxides
• point defects in oxides
• oxide devices
