10.5.1 Overview

We now extend the principles of the preceding sections to one of the emerging technologies in chemical engineering. Chemical engineers are now playing an important role in the electronics industry. Specifically, they are becoming more involved in the manufacture of electronic and photonic devices, recording materials, and especially medical lab-on-a-chip devices.

Surface reactions play an important role in the manufacture of microelectronic devices. One of the single most important developments of the twentieth century was the invention of the integrated circuit. Advances in the development of integrated circuitry have led to the production of circuits that can be placed on a single semiconductor chip the size of a pinhead and ...
