Each year, the SVC Foundation supports students traveling to the SVC Techcon to present their research. Deesha Shah is a Ph.D. student at Purdue University where she studies ultra-thin plasmonic materials for tunable nanophotonic devices. They key to realizing their applications requires the ability to produce metallic films that are only a few monolayers in thickness and yet maintain their metallic nature. During the Optical Coating session at the SVC, Deesha presented the status of her current studies of TiN films with thickness down to 2 nm using DC reactive magnetron sputtering. The investigated films remain metallic even with her thinnest layers.
