About the book

This book on "Soldering - New Techniques and Approaches" will intend to provide a comprehensive discussion into the diverse topics in soldering and modern interconnection technology. One of the goals of the book will be to bridge this gap while moving from conventional to advanced lead-free soldering technology. Recent developments in high-density interconnection require the development of cost-effective and lightweight miniaturized devices such as flip-chip packages and through Si via technology. The micro joining of these miniaturized appliances needs low-cost interconnect materials and approaches in a practical scenario. The evolution of microelectronic devices and circuits towards drastic miniaturization and high density-high speed platforms for rapid data processing necessitates the development of new advanced and reliable solder materials. The usage of conventional Sn-Pb solders has been now regulated worldwide due to the various toxicity issues and directives, i.e., the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), and End-of-Life Vehicles (ELV). This book will aim to cover a broad overview of modern soldering and micro joining materials and new technologies developed over the years in this discipline.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
