This new volume in the "Physics of Thin Films" series, discusses the mechanical properties of thin films and dielectric layers for integrated optics and opto-electronics. The text examines the mechanical properties of thin films specifically as they relate to superlattices and also discusses hard coatings prepared by sputtering and arc evaporation. It reviews the unique role played by piezoelectric films in surface wave and bulk wave device structures, concluding with a discussion of emerging technology in this active area. The text presents a complete overview of ferroelectric films and their uses in integrated electronics. Finally, it discusses electrochromic thin films and their numerous applications, including potential use as optical switching devices for "smart windows". This volume should be of interest to researchers in electrical engineering, condensed matter physics and material science departments, as well as academic and industrial thin film researchers.
