Turn to this new second edition for an understanding of the latest advances in the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process. CVD technology has recently grown at a rapid rate, and the number and scope of its applications and their impact on the market have increased considerably. The market is now estimated to be at least double that of a mere seven years ago when the first edition of this book was published. The second edition is an update with a considerably expanded and revised scope. Plasma CVD and metallo-organic CVD are two major factors in this rapid growth. Readers will find the latest data on both processes in this volume. Likewise, the book explains the growing importance of CVD in production of semiconductor and related applications.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
".presents an objective and systematic assessment." - High Tech Ceramics News
Reviews the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process and its many applications for coatings, powders, fibers, and monolithic components. Individual chapters discuss the CVD of metals, allotropes of carbon, non-metallic elements, and ceramic materials. The second edition updates coverage of plasma CVD, metallo-organic CVD, and the role of CVD in semiconductor production. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
