This paper addresses the future prospects for sol-gel processing. It includes responses from nearly two dozen leading practitioners of the sol-gel art, who were kind enough to answer a questionnaire about the present state and future directions of the field. Overall, the prospects appear quite bright; but achievement of anything like the full potential of the method will require greatly increased interaction between sol-gel specialists and device technologists.
