Abstract
The sol-gel process uses metal alkoxides of network forming cations, such as Si, B, or Al, in alcohol/water solutions to form glass-like, polymeric networks in liquid solution. Thin films are formed by depositing the solution on a substrate by spinning, dipping or spraying. When the film is then heated to moderate temperatures (400-500°C), dense glass films or stable porous films are obtained.
