How to DIY ITO with a thermal evaporator

Ben Krasnow’s project:

I’ve put enough work into my thermal evaporator project so that I can actually start using it to create thin films. For my first test, I made some aluminum mirrors on glass, and also coated glass with ITO (Indium Tin Oxide), a transparent conductor used in LCDs and OLEDs. The mirrors look nice, but the ITO was not conductive — more research required.
