  • Lasers in Materials Scienceby Marta Castillejo; Paolo M. Ossi; Leonid Zhigilei

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book covers various aspects of lasers in materials science, including a comprehensive overview on basic principles of laser-materials interactions and applications enabled by pulsed laser systems. The material is organized in a coherent way, providing the reader with a harmonic architecture.While systematically covering the major current and emerging... more...

  • Subsecond Annealing of Advanced Materialsby Wolfgang Skorupa; Heidemarie Schmidt

    Springer 2013; US$ 109.00

    The thermal processing of materials ranges from few fem to seconds by Swift Heavy Ion Implantation to about one second using advanced Rapid Thermal Annealing. This book offers after an historical excursus selected contributions on fundamental and applied aspects of thermal processing of classical elemental semiconductors and other advanced materials... more...

  • Bio-inspired Asymmetric Design and Building of Biomimetic Smart Single Nanochannelsby Xu Hou

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis, the author introduces various bio-inspired smart nanochannel systems. A strategy for design and preparation of novel artificial responsive symmetric/asymmetric single nanochannel systems under various symmetric/asymmetric stimuli is presented for the first time. The author’s research work utilizes ion track etching polymer nanochannels... more...

  • Inorganic Nanoarchitectures by Organic Self-Assemblyby Stefan Guldin

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    Macromolecular self-assembly - driven by weak, non-covalent, intermolecular forces - is a common principle of structure formation in natural and synthetic organic materials. The variability in material arrangement on the nanometre length scale makes this an ideal way of matching  the structure-function demands of photonic and optoelectronic devices.... more...

  • Double-Gyroid-Structured Functional Materialsby Maik Rudolf Johann Scherer

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    The development of new high-tech applications and devices has created a seemingly insatiable demand for novel functional materials with enhanced and tailored properties. Such materials can be achieved by three-dimensional structuring on the nanoscale, giving rise to a significant enhancement of particular functional characteristics which stems from... more...

  • Dynamicsby Eckart Hasselbrink; Bengt I. Lundqvist

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 455.00

    This volume of the Handbook of Surface Science covers all aspects of the dynamics of surface processes. Two dozen world leading experts in this field address the subjects of energy exchange in gas atoms, surface collisions, the rules governing dissociative adsorption on surfaces, the formation of nanostructures on surfaces by self-assembly, and the... more...

  • Electronic Structureby K. Horn; M. Scheffler

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 530.00

    This book is the second volume in the Handbook of Surface Science series and deals with aspects of the electronic structure of surfaces as investigated by means of the experimental and theoretical methods of physics. The importance of understanding surface phenomena stems from the fact that for many physical and chemical phenomena, the surface plays... more...

  • Physics of Crystal Growthby Alberto Pimpinelli; Jacques Villain

    Cambridge University Press 1998; US$ 74.00

    This 1998 study introduces the physical principles of how and why crystals grow; for graduate students and researchers. more...

  • Physical Structureby W.N. Unertl

    Elsevier Science 1996; US$ 408.00

    The primary goal of this book is to summarize the current level of accumulated knowledge about the physical structure of solid surfaces with emphasis on well-defined surfaces at the gas-solid and vacuum-solid interfaces. The intention is not only to provide a standard reference for practitioners, but also to provide a good starting point for scientists... more...

  • Electronic Processes at Solid Surfacesby E. Llisca; K. Makoshi; E. Ilisca

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 152.00

    The subject of surface physics has now grown to become an exciting interdisciplinary field of research with important practical applications.The purpose of this book is to provide a guided tour of some recent advances, key research issues and approaches in electronic processes at solid surfaces.Apart from a few structural studies, selected topics have... more...
