With the continuing drive for higher circuit density and very high-speed data processing the search for new polymeric materials to use in microelectronics has intensified. The development of polymers for electronics applications is an open field wherein polymers may be used as insulating materials or tailored for desired electronic properties for specific applications. Conjugated polymers have been projected to have numerous applications and are presently at centre-stage of R&D.
The Handbook of Polymers in Electronics has been designed to discuss the novel ways in which polymers can be used in the rapidly growing electronics industry. It provides discussion of the preparation and characterisation of suitable polymeric materials and their current and potential applications coupled with the fundamentals of electrical, optical and photophysical properties. It will thus serve the needs of those already active in the electronics field as well as new entrants to the industry.
