This article presents information on the application of thin film photodetectors for bioanalytical platforms. The challenges for the engineering of a well-adapted photodetectors and imagers includes the optical detection of luminescence, fluorescence, reflexion and absorption signals in various kinds of bioanalytical platforms. The discovery of advanced materials offers the possibility of constructing a superior and versatile photodetectors.

    The excellent soft magnetic properties of amorphous (a-) CoFeSiB films make it suited for use in the yoke of granular-in-gap sensors, but only if their thermal stability can be improved. To this end, this study investigated the effects of adding small amounts of other metals on the magnetic and...

    Highly ordered herringbone buckling patterns have been observed in stiff thin films on elastomeric substrates under an equibiaxial compression. Existing mechanics models assume the thin film to be isotropic, which does not agree with recent experiments of single crystal thin films (e.g.,...

    Epitaxial BiFeO3 thin films on miscut (001) SrTiO3 substrates relax via mechanisms leading to an average rotation of the crystallographic axes of the BiFeO3 layer with respect to the substrate. The angle of the rotation reaches a maximum in the plane defined by the surface normal of the film and...

    Bilayered multiferroic nanocomposite films of preferentially oriented Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O3 (PZT) and CoFe2O4 (CFO) were prepared on general Pt/Ti/SiO2/Si substrate via a simple solution processing. Different annealing processings resulted in different preferential orientations for the PZT layers...

    The present study deals with BiFeO3 and SrRuO3 thin films deposited on large lattice mismatched substrates like LaAlO3, MgO, and SrTiO3. The 80 nm thickness BiFeO3 films deposited directly on LaAlO3 substrate are highly constrained, while those on SrTiO3 substrate are only somewhat constrained....

    Continuous thin films of Pt on (100) SrTiO substrates were dewetted to form Pt particles at 1,150 °C, using an oxygen partial pressure of 10 atm. After retraction of thick (50 or 100 nm) Pt films, SrTiO anisotropic rods, slightly depleted in Ti, were found on the surface of the substrate....
