    Abstract: An important aspect of tribology and lubrication is the question of the relationships and the predictability of phenomena of the interaction of lubricants with metal surfaces. In recent years studies on interactions of antiwear additives and sulfur carriers have been presented. Significant differences in the interaction with different metal surface... Show More

    Abstract: P-type tin oxide thin film deposited by RF sputtering for transparent thin film transistor (TFT) applications is the subject of this study. P-type tin oxide thin film can be made by doping a cation with a lower valence into n-type SnO2 as an acceptor impurity or by fabrication with tin monoxide (SnO). The later method was investigated in this study... Show More
