This volume contains 16 papers originally presented at the Montreal Workshop on Polymer Metallization, held at the Ecole Polytechnique, June, 2001, in Montreal. The intent of this volume is to highlight new findings, bringing those in the field up to date on a variety of topics related to polymer metallization.

The papers contained in Metallization of Polymers 2 stress the recent finding that the metallization initially deposits onto low permittivity polymers in the form of clusters. Low permittivity polymers are explored, as are several instrumental methods for evaluating cluster dimensions and exploring cluster behavior. The morphology and chemistry of barrier layer formation are presented, as are new methods of metal adhesion.

From the Preface: “As the demands put on the polymer/metal interface, particularly by the microelectronics industry, become more and more severe, the necessity for understanding this interface, its properties and its limitations, becomes more and more essential. This requires a broad knowledge of, and a familiarity with, the latest findings in this rapidly advancing field...”

Target Audience: Any researcher, scientist, technologist, engineer, or upper-level student concerned with polymer metallization and its applications.
