Abstract

Spin-coating is widely employed for the highly reproducible fabrication of thin film coatings over large areas with high structural uniformity. Research in recent years has extended the scope of spin-coating by chemically engineering the interface of support and solution to obtain specific structural order in the resulting supported thin films. This review will discuss both the fundamental physical and chemical processes governing the conventional spin-coating process and describe methodologies for the preparation of spin-coated polymer thin films. Furthermore, a range of advanced applications and recent developments within this field will be reviewed with focus on engineering chemical and topological structure during the coating process.
