This is the first book that can be considered a textbook on thin film science, complete with exercises at the end of each chapter. Ohring has contributed many highly regarded reference books to the AP list, including Reliability and Failure of Electronic Materials and the Engineering Science of Thin Films. The knowledge base is intended for science and engineering students in advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate level courses on thin films and scientists and engineers who are entering or require an overview of the field. Since 1992, when the book was first published, the field of thin films has expanded tremendously, especially with regard to technological applications. The second edition brought the book up-to-date with regard to these advances. The third edition will be fully updated to reflect new developments in thin film science, and will be revised by Daniel Gall, noted thin films researcher and professor at RPI. *Best-selling, most authoritative textbook on thin films *Contains extensive tables, figures and recent references related to thin film science and technology *Treats both chemical and physical vapor deposition of thin films *Includes fully updated figures, many new examples and end-of-chapter problems *Online instructor support includes solutions manual and PowerPoint slides
