Thin Films: Growth of Transparent and Conductive Polycrystalline (0001)-ZnO Films on Glass Substrates Under Low-Temperature Hydrothermal Conditions (Adv. Funct. Mater. 15/2012)
In a race to find alternatives for indium tin oxide (ITO) in flat panel display technology, new replacement materials are being extensively investigated. As reported by Aleksander Rečnik and co-workers on page 3136, the basic principles of crystal growth under geometrically constrained conditions can be exploited to manufacture highly transparent and conductive ZnO films on glass. The image was recorded using a JEOL JSM-7600F microscope by Matejka Podlogar and graphically designed by Aljaž Iveković.
