      The materials research society (pages 69–71)

      Prof. Robert P. H. Chang

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020202

      In its seventeen years of existence the Materials Research Society (MRS) has witnessed tremendous advances in the research and development of, for example, ceramics, semiconductors and biomaterials. The basis and development of the Society as well as the newly founded International Materials Research Committee are described, and the MRS's interdisciplinary activities are presented.

    1. Solid State NMR spectroscopy in polymer science (pages 72–81)

      Dr. Bernhard Blümich, Dipl.-Chem. Alfred Hagemeyer, Dipl.-Chem. Dieter Schaefer, Dipl.-Phys. Klaus Schmidt-Rohr and Prof. Hans W. Spiess

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020203

      Solid state NMR spectroscopy is a powerful technique which can be used to investigate structural aspects of, and dynamic processes in polymers. An example of the spectra which can be obtained is shown in the Figure, from which information concerning molecular reorientation can be obtained, one of the processes determining the properties of solid polymers. This review describes the NMR techniques devised recently to examine the structure, order, and dynamics of the molecules which make up the polymers.

    2. Surface modification with lasers (pages 82–90)

      Dr. Paul B. Comita

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020204

      Laser induced processing has been widely exploited in the microelectronics industry to produce deposits with well controlled chemical composition, feature size, and morphology. The most commonly used techniques for material patterning are surveyed and important aspects of deposition kinetics and laser-induced surface reactions are discussed including the possibility to simulate growth processes in, for example, laser assisted chemical vapor deposition (LCVD).

    1. Functionalized conducting polymers: Enhancement of the redox reversibility of polypyrrole by substituting polyether chains at the 3-positions (pages 91–94)

      Dr. Didier Delabouglise and Prof. Francis Garnier

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020205

      The performance of solid state batteries which employ conducting polymers as electrodes can be enhanced by the substitution of polyether chains onto the polymer backbone. The synthesis of pyrrole substituted in this manner (see Figure) is reported and the redox characteristics of the polymer based on this starting block described.

    2. Aurivillius phases: Non-superconducting materials? (pages 94–97)

      Dr. Wuzong Zhou

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020206

      Are aurivillius phases a new class of metal oxide superconductor? Recent reports in theliterature suggest that they are but this new study of these two-layered structures, such as Bi2WO6 (see figure) which contains fluorite-like Bi2O2 layers sandwiched by WO4 perovskite slabs, indicates that this is perhaps not the case. Electron microscopy and electron diffraction are used to probe these and related phases.

    1. Molecular Materials I. Molecular materials mimic inorganic network solids (pages 98–99)

      Dr. Joel S. Miller

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020207

      Functional organic materials have been developed over the last twenty-five years which compete for applications in optical, electrical and magnetic technologies with the more traditional inorganic network solids. In the first article of a regular series Joel Miller of DuPont describes some applications of these molecular materials, warns of some of the pitfalls involved and sets the scene for his future articles.

    2. Surface analysis II. Surface-plasmon enhanced resolution in optical microscopy (pages 100–102)

      Dr. Jürgen P. Rabe

      Version of Record online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19900020208

      Methods of improving the resolution of optical microscopes which involve, for example, forcing the light through an aperture which is smaller than the wavelength of the light (see Figure) or the coupling of the light to a plasmon to form a surface-plasmon polariton are described. The latter method is particularly suitable for determining, for example, the optical thickness of an ultrathin transparent film with high precision on a micron scale.
