Non-crystalline films can be prepared by many techniques. Broadly, these include deposition from the vapor phase, deposition from solutions, and by quenching the liquid. The properties of such films can be significantly varied by changing the conditions of formation as well as by subsequent treatments. Examples of some of these aspects are reviewed particularly for oxide films. Scientifically, one of the most important questions is whether the structure, and hence properties, of non-crystalline films can vary significantly because of its preparation history. This problem is discussed through examples of more recent work. Author
