This report explores the optimization of parameters for fabricating high-quality films. Over six weeks, various parameters were adjusted, including cleaning duration, spin-coating speeds, plasma treatment times, and solution preparation techniques. The experiments resulted in significant improvements in film quality and uniformity. Extended cleaning times and two-step spin-coating techniques proved effective in reducing dust and bubbles. Future steps involve investigating square-shaped formations, correlating film thickness with color, and further refining parameter settings. The findings highlight the importance of parameter optimization in achieving desired film characteristics.
