Films made of iron oxide with a spinel structure and zinc oxide with a cubic structure

What is it about?

Thin films of oxide/oxide nanocomposites are prepared by sputtering. They display semi-conducting properties. The zinc oxide has a non-conventional cubic structure.

Why is it important?

The thin films studied could be interesting for temperature sensors used for instance in bolometric detectors.
