Thin Film Materials

ShaoFan Li( ):

I recommend an excellent book on thin film mechanics:
Thin Film Materials --- Stress, Defect Formation and Surface Evolution By L. B. Freund and S. Suresh, Cambridge University Press, 2003.


  • I used most part of this book in my class, Thin Film Mechanics, in Fall 2004. The students seemed to have some mixed feelings about this book, such as the comprehensiveness of the material, depth of particular topics, and some errors/typos in the exercise problems and text. I will likely teach this class again next year, and would like to see any other comments about this book.
