Description of Research
Current Areas of research include the formation and processing of polymers for electronic applications. Especially of interest are novel polymers or polymer systems with enhanced sensitivity to deep UV and electron beam radiation. Also, the polymers must show resistance to oxygen-containing plasmas which are used in the production of integrated circuits. Another area of research is that of polymer recycling. Solvent processes for separation or purification of plastics and gamma radiation of blends are two avenues of approach.
