In this article, a new type of semiconducting material is introduced. Transparent conducting thin films are already established in our everydaylife. But the type of these so-called "TCOs" is dominated by electron transport, that means they are n-type. To get transparent p-n-junctions and therefore transparent electronics, the missing part is a transparent p-type material. Researchers all over the world have found different approach to produce this new generation of materials. At the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films (IST) in Braunschweig it is now possible to produce these kind of thin films as well
