Film formation processes determine the final end use properties and morphologies of coating and thin films. Understanding these processes allows the tailor-making of coatings and films with unique morphologies and properties. This symposium series book describes recent research into the kinetics, mechanism, and rate processes in film formation as well as resulting unique morphologies. Several unique characterization methods are applied to study film formation kinetics, morphology,
film structure, and properties.
This volume focuses on the film formation process from the perspective of kinetics and mechanism which determines the evolution of final film properties and morphology and film structure fora variety of polymeric and caotings systems.
