Paper Abstract

We have used the electrostatic self-assembly (ESA) processing technique to synthesize a series of functional nanocomposites. For example, such films exhibit large electro-optic coefficients (r33), excellent piezoelectric properties (d33), high electrical conductivity and giant magnetoresistance (GMR). By controlling the molecular structure of the components and the physical ordering of multiple multilayers, the macroscopic properties of the multilayer thin films fabricated using this simple, low-cost method may be determined. Such processing techniques may be incorporated with ink jet print technologies to form patterned thin film structures. For low-cost upscaling to larger substrates, spray techniques are being investigated.
