Solution Processing of Inorganic Materials covers everything from the more traditional fields of sol-gel processing and chemical bath deposition to the cutting-edge use of nanomaterials in thin-film deposition. In particular, the book focuses on materials and techniques that are compatible with high-throughput, low-cost, and low-temperature deposition processes such as spin coating, dip coating, printing, and stamping. Throughout the text, illustrations and examples of applications are provided to help researchers fully appreciate the concepts and opportunities involved in this exciting field.

About Author

David B. Mitzi, PhD, is a Research Staff Member in the Physical Sciences Department at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center. His research examines the solid-state chemistry, thin-film deposition and device opportunities for a variety of materials with potentially useful electronic or optical properties. Most recently, his focus has been on organic-inorganic hybrids and the development of solution-processed high-mobility inorganic semiconductors for thin-film devices (e.g., TFTs, LEDs, solar cells). Dr. Mitzi holds a number of patents and has authored or coauthored more than one hundred papers.
