Oxide thin films are finding applications in a wide range of energy technologies, from ion conductors through photovoltaics and thermoelectrics to dielectrics and capacitors. Each of these energy technologies requires a thorough understanding of the materials chemistry of the oxide film and its interactions with the environment, substrate etc. Whilst in each technology area there may be materials differences, much of the materials chemistry optimisation may be common. For example, common families of oxides are employed, ABO3 perovskites in particular, and in this there are areas where discussion between user communities can prove mutually beneficial. It is the purpose of this meeting to foster an exchange of ideas between the relevant energy themes with the overall aim of provoking extensive discussion of the advances that materials chemistry can make in thin film energy applications.
