This book provides a multidisciplinary introduction to the subject of Langmuir-Blodgett films. These films are the focus of intense current worldwide interest, as the ability to deposit organic films of nanometre thicknesses has many implications in materials science, and in the development of new electronic and opto-electronic devices. Beginning with the application of simple thermodynamics to the common bulk phases of matter, the book outlines the nature of the phases associated with floating monolayer films. The Langmuir-Blodgett deposition process itself is described in some detail and contrasted with other thin film techniques. Monolayer-forming materials and the structural, electrical and optical properties of Langmuir-Blodgett films are discussed separately. Each chapter is comprehensive, easy to understand and generously illustrated. Appendices are provided for the reader wishing to delve deeper into the physics and chemistry background.

' ... an excellent introduction to the science of Langmuir-Blodgett films. Any academic who is involved in this area would be wise to purchase a copy to have available for students under their supervision, while researchers in the wider community who would like perhaps to dabble in this interesting area of science may equally be advised to purchase a copy. At GBP16.95 for 235 pages containing much useful information it is to be recommended.' Prof. J. R. Sambles, Journal of Modern Optics
'If a field of human art is only considered to be mature when it has been covered in a textbook, then scientists studying Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films should thank Michael Petty. His book is the first description of the field to be aimed at a wide range of readers. ... Petty's book is a well documented and fairly large overview of all the physical aspects of the LB method. It will be appreciated by graduate students starting in the field and by anyone who thinks that LB films deserve interest.' Serge Palacin, Physics World
'I found the book easy to read and adequately illustrated throughout. It covers a broad subject area and is an ideal introduction to this rapidly growing area. The author has brought together a wealth of information, and although the subject matter is multidisciplinary, he provides sufficient background information to make the book useful to physicists, chemists, novices and experts.' G. J. Ashwell, Chemistry in Britain
'... a clear description ... It provides a useful introduction for both students and new researchers.' Aslib Book Guide
