#203 - Polymer Thin Films and Interfaces I (08A16)
Polymer thin films and interfaces are critical in a variety of fields including membrane technology, separations, microelectronics, optoelectronics, paints and coatings, adhesives, drug delivery, and bioengineering. Papers covering all aspects polymer thin film science and technology are welcome in the Polymer Thin Films and Interfaces sessions. This session will have a particular focus on experimental and modeling studies of fundamental thin film behavior and properties.
