Author Affiliations +
Unique thin film microstructures have been fabricated with the Glancing Angle Deposition (GLAD) technique. These porous, thin films can be engineered with a variety of different morphologies to sub-micron dimensions, including helical, post, and chevron or zigzag microstructures. This paper reports some recent results in study and application of films deposited using GLAD, namely: the use of low pressure, long throw sputtering to produce porous titanium films; deposition of porous, structured ZrO2 films for use as thermal barriers; and measurement of the mechanical response of chiral or `microspring' thin films.
