Abstract : The research performed under this contract focused on the molecular engineering of thin polymer films prepared from functionally terminated oligomers by application of Langmuir Blodgett monolayer and multilayer film transfer techniques. The goals of the work were to: (1) Fabricate ultrathin films (i.e. 1-10 nm thickness) with controlled thickness, orientation, and surface chemistry. ( 2) Use these films to develop boundary lubricants that are stable at high temperatures. ( 3) Apply these films to stabilize the aging characteristics of bulk acoustic wave oscillators. (MM)
