Although methods of depositing thin films of metals in vacuum on glass, ceramics, plastics, as well as on metals have been known for more than 75 years, their use until recently has been chiefly in physical and chemical laboratories. They have been useful in the study of atomic structure, electron theory, and the production of metal films on miscellaneous surfaces for specialized purposes. Modern evacuating systems with their highly efficient associated devices have only recently brought these processes important practical and commercial uses.
