    1. How to tailor molecular electronics or why is nature taking the ‘soft’ approach (pages 362–365)

      Prof. Dietrich Haarer

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890011102

      Nature performs “molecular electronics” with astounding efficiency. Now, researchers attempt to duplicate these processes in order to produce, for example, molecular switches. The recent direction of molecular electronics work has been towards ever increasing miniaturization but this is in fact not how nature approaches the problem. The current status of human “molecular electronics” is assessed and compared with nature's highly successful version.

    1. Polymer optical fibers and nonlinear optical device principles (pages 366–377)

      Dr. W. Groh, Dr. D. Lupo and Prof. H. Sixl

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890011103

      Optoelectronics is a field where polymer systems play a crucial role. In this article, new types of polymer optic fibers are examined and nonlinear optical device design is discussed. The figure shows a star bus network, one of the systems into which Langmuir-Blodgett films and electrically poled polymers are incorporated.

    2. High-performance Silicon Nitride Materials (pages 378–387)

      Dr. Cornelia Boberski, Dr. Rainer Hamminger, Dr. P. Peuckert, Dr. Fritz Aldinger, Dr. Reinhard Dillinger, Dr. Jürgen Heinrich and Dr. Jürgen Huber

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890011104

      Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) is a ceramic which shows high performance at high temperatures and therefore has potential for incorporation into car engines. For this application, however, the material must be produced to consistently high standards and exhibit uniform properties. This has, in the past, presented problems to development and process engineers. Progress in this field from the point of view of workers from Hoechst is summarized, and future directions of research are discussed.

    1. Spatially selective conducting patterns in transparent films derived from ladder type polymers (pages 387–389)

      Igal Belaish, Prof Dan Davidov, Prof. Heny Selig, Dr. Malcolm R. McLean and Prof. Larry Dalton

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890011105

      Conducting patterns embedded in a completely transparent polymer film can be produced using selective heating by laser annealing of cross-linked, stable, ladder-like polymers followed by fluorination. The figure shows a transparent film treated in this way containing the permanent, conducting pattern.

    1. Highly conjugated, substituted polyacetylenes via the ring-opening metathesis polymerization of substituted cyclooctatetraenes (pages 389–392)

      Robert H. Grubbs, Christopher B. Gorman, Eric J. Ginsburg and Dr. Seth R. Marder

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890011106

      Soluble polyacetylenes with high conjugation length and high molecular weight are a goal of polymer scientists. The ring-opening metathesis polymerization of substituted cyclooctatetraenes (COT) to form soluble substituted polyacetylenes which display iodine doped conductivities in the range 0.1 to 50 S/cm are reported. The solubility is imparted by the alkyl groups which occupy, on average, every eighth carbon atom of the polymer backbone.

    1. Monolayers and Langmuir–Blodgett multilayers of discotic liquid crystals? (pages 392–395)

      Dr. André Laschewsky

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890011107

      Discotic liquid crystals were discovered in 1977. Since then these systems, composed of large planar aromatic moieties or inflexible macrocyclic units surrounded by “wing” groups (see figure, R = C8H17) have attracted much attention especially in thin film technology. The development and future of these compounds are discussed.

    2. Surface analysis I. Imaging surfaces, electric charges and magnetic domains with the atomic force microscope (pages 396–399)

      Dr. Jürgen P. Rabe

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890011108

      Surface Analysis I. Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) provides a method of imaging surfaces on an atomic scale. Closely related to STM, AFM can, however, image insulating materials such as organic molecules. The technique is described and some recent applications discussed in the first article of a regular series from Jürgen Rube on surface analysis techniques.

    3. Low temperature deposition of a CaF2 insulator layer on GaAs (pages 399–400)

      Dr. A. W. Vere, Dr. K. J. Mackey, Dr. D. C. Rodway, Dr. P. C. Smith, Dr. D. M. Frigo and Prof. D. C. Bradley

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890011109

      Multilayer semiconductor-insulator structures composed of epitaxially grown layers of, for example, GaAs and CaF, have been the subject of widespread interest in recent years. The methods used to overcome lattice mismatch problems in order to obtain high quality insulator thin films are discussed along with photochemical decomposition methods for their production at low temperatures.
