The topic of thin organic films on metals will bring to mind different models for different individuals, depending upon their background and scientific area. For example, one might think of a polymer layer on a metal, such as the coating on the inside of a food can, a protective plastic coating on an automobile bumper, or decorative construction panels used widely in the building industry. On the other hand, one might think of organic contaminants on metal contacts in integrated circuits or contamination of semi-conductor processing lines. A third possibility would be layers deposited on metals, such as those used in photo-resist technology. In short, thin polymer films on metals is a topic which covers many areas of materials science.
