Thin films; Surfaces

  • Nanostructured Materials for Magnetoelectronicsby Bekir Aktas; Faik Mikailzade

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 116.76

    This book provides an up-to-date review of nanometer-scale magnetism and focuses on the investigation of the basic properties of magnetic nanostructures. It describes a wide range of physical aspects together with theoretical and experimental methods. more...

  • Photoinduced Modifications of the Nonlinear Optical Response in Liquid Crystalline Azopolymersby Raquel Alicante

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 95.53

    This study of the molecular response of a variety of push-pull organic compounds offers a starting point for macroscopic-scale investigation of azobenzene-based liquid crystalline polymeric films and their blends with highly efficient NLO chromophores. more...

  • Nanomaterials and Nanoarchitecturesby M. Bardosova; T. Wagner

    Springer Netherlands 2015; US$ 84.91

    The current work consists of nine contributions describing recent progress in the interdisciplinary of Nanoscience, which involves physics, chemistry, engineering, biology and medicine and one essay outlining some important historical and socioeconomic factors pertaining to recent developments in nanoscale science and technology. All 10 chapters... more...

  • Biomimeticsby Bharat Bhushan

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 180.45

    This revised, updated and expanded new edition presents an overview of biomimetics and biologically inspired structured surfaces. It deals with various examples of biomimetics which include surfaces with roughness-induced superomniphobicity, self-cleaning, antifouling, and controlled adhesion. The focus in the book is on the Lotus Effect,... more...

  • Applied Scanning Probe Methods IIIby Bharat Bhushan; Harald Fuchs

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 169.84

    The Nobel Prize of 1986 on Sc- ning Tunneling Microscopy sig- led a new era in imaging. The sc- ning probes emerged as a new i- trument for imaging with a pre- sion suf?cient to delineate single atoms. At ?rst there were two ? the Scanning Tunneling Microscope, or STM, and the Atomic Force Mic- scope, or AFM. The STM relies on electrons tunneling between... more...

  • Applied Scanning Probe Methods VIIIby Bharat Bhushan; Harald Fuchs; Masahiko Tomitori

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 211.25

    The success of the Springer Series Applied Scanning Probe Methods I?VII and the rapidly expanding activities in scanning probe development and applications worldwide made it a natural step to collect further speci c results in the elds of development of scanning probe microscopy techniques (Vol. VIII), characterization (Vol. IX), and biomimetics and... more...

  • Structure and Properties of Liquid Crystalsby Lev M. Blinov

    Springer Netherlands 2010; US$ 116.76

    This book introduces the most important concepts related to the structure and physical properties of liquid crystals, including some of the theoretical aspects. It consists of three parts: structure, physical properties, and electro-optic behavior. more...

  • Thin Liquid Filmsby Ralf Blossey

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 79.61

    Here is a treatise on the thermodynamic and dynamic properties of thin liquid films at solid surfaces, particularly their rupture instabilities. The authors balance 'light' and 'rigorous' mathematical approaches, always conveying the elegance of the theory. more...

  • Laser Surface Processing and Characterizationby I.W. Boyd

    Elsevier Science 1992; US$ 72.95

    The contributions in this volume reflect not only the growing understanding of the underlying mechanisms controlling the various reactions in laser surface processing, but also the potential of several developing applications of direct processing. The most notable trend in the field currently is the technique of laser ablation, which is reported in... more...

  • Surface and Thin Film Analysisby Henning Bubert; Holger Jenett

    Wiley 2011; US$ 212.00 US$ 183.73

    The development and quality assurance of such high-tech materials as semiconductors or biopolymers demand special analytical methods for surfaces and thin films. This book presents the whole spectrum of methods available in a clear manner, moving beyond the basics, equipment and applications to compare these methods. This allows users to find the optimum... more...
