    Displays using electro-optical effects in liquid crystals are now well established and have permitted the manufacture of many new or improved products. This review examines the underlying physics and chemistry which underpins their use as molecular-electronics devices, describes how they operate and looks at a number of recent applications and possible future developments.

  • Organic fatigue-resistant photochromic imaging materials

    Publication Year: 1983, Page(s):209 - 211

    Photochromism in the fulgides described in the paper depends upon conrotatory photocyclisation on exposure to ultraviolet light. The reverse process occurs on irradiation of the resulting coloured compounds with visible light. The reactions, being concerted, do not involve reactive intermediates and the photochromic systems show a very high resistance to fatigue processes as well as complete therm... View full abstract»

    When fluids and molecular solutions are subjected to electric fields various optical properties undergo a change. Although the best known effect is that of electric birefringence (the Kerr effect), other electro-optical phenomena such as scattering, optical rotation, dichroism and fluorescence all exist and have been used to study macromolecules. A brief account is given of representative electro-... View full abstract»

    In recent years, there has been considerable interest expressed in the polymer polyvinylidene fluoride, stemming largely from its piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties. The wide range of applications for this transducer material is reviewed, and a number of applications are described in greater detail, in particular for use as an acoustically transparent membrane hydrophone for transducer cali...

    A survey is presented of the progress made in recent years in the field of conducting polymers. This includes progress (i) on the experimental side (preparation, characterisation and doping, (ii) in the theoretical description of quasi-one-dimensional systems, (iii) in technological applications of linearly conjugated polymers. The advantages and disadvantages of each material are compared and con... View full abstract»

    The integration of various types of semiconductor devices with particular electrochemically active thin films makes possible a new generation of integrated-circuit chemical microtransducers which have many important (and unique) advantages over their conventional antecedents, including small size, robust solid-state nature and the potential for low-cost mass-fabrication; attributes which are parti...

  • Chemistry of polymeric resists useful in microlithography

    Publication Year: 1983, Page(s):245 - 251
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (868 KB)

    Polymer resists are indispensible to modern-day manufacture of integrated circuits and, to be effective, demand special combinations of many properties, such as sensitivity and resolution, for particular forms of radiation exposure, adhesion to semiconductor, metals and dielectric layers, resistance to plasma processing techniques and the ability to withstand appropriate thermal treatments. The na... View full abstract»

  • Langmuir-Blodgett electron-beam resists

    Publication Year: 1983, Page(s):252 - 255
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (615 KB)

    The Langmuir-Blodgett(LB) technique is a new way of applying resist to a substrate for microstructure fabrication. It provides a layer of much greater homogeneity and uniformity than is possible with conventional techniques, advantages expected to be of special importance in electron-beam lithography. The paper reviews work published in this field, which covers both positive- and negative-contrast... View full abstract»

  • Control of Schottky-diode-barrier height by Langmuir-Blodgett monolayers

    Publication Year: 1983, Page(s):256 - 259
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (536 KB)

    The authors show that it is possible to produce near-ideal Schottky diodes of the form GaP/polymeric monolayer/Au, by the Langmuir-Blodgett technique. By modifying poly(styrene/maleic anhydride) in various ways, monolayers with differing headgroup compositions but the same layer thickness were deposited. The resulting devices had barrier heights in the range 1.1¿1.5 eV depending on the headgroups... View full abstract»

  • Phthalocyanine Langmuir Blodgett-fiim gas detector

    The deposition of Langmuir-Blodgett films of an asymmetrically substituted copper phthalocyanine is reported. Capacitance and optical absorption data reveal that these films can be deposited in a reproducible manner; results are also presented showing the extreme sensitivity of their electrical conductivity to ambients such as nitrogen dioxide. The relatively fast recovery times, compared with tho... View full abstract»
