Although chemical engineering principles are at the heart of solid state process technology, until now no reference volume addressing this relationship was available. This is the first book of its kind to tie fundamental engineering concepts to solid state process technology. Discussing thebasic concepts involved--liquid-phase epitaxy, physical and chemical vapor deposition, diffusion and oxidation in silicon, resists in microlithography, etc.--this volume will be particularly useful in chemical engineering courses. It offers a framework within which specialized courses inmicroelectronics processing can be organized. In addition, it serves as a valuable reference source for all industrial engineers working with the individual process steps covered.Hess, Dennis W. is the author of 'Microelectronics Processing Chemical Engineering Aspects' with ISBN 9780841214750 and ISBN 0841214751.
