The design and development of dyes and chromophores has recently attracted much attention in various research fields such as materials, radiation curing, (laser) imaging, optics, medicine, microelectronics, nanotechnology, etc., and their use is widespread in polymer and materials science.

The authors of this book describe the basic principles and applications of dyes and chromophores within the polymer science and technology area and focus on the role played by these structures for the final properties of the polymer.

They provide a complete overview of the systems encountered and a thorough description of the mechanisms involved, thus providing the reader with all the necessary information in a single book.

The associated fields (optics, electronics, photovoltaics, materials, etc.) are largely emphasized and discussed and recently proposed systems are presented in detail. Up-to-date, promising and exciting developments are also illustrated.
