  • Statistics in Spectroscopyby Howard Mark; Jerry Jr. Workman

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 210.00

    Statistics in Spectroscopy, Second Edition, is an expanded and updated version of the original title. The aim of the book is to bridge the gap between the average chemist/spectroscopist and the study of statistics. The book introduces the novice reader to the ideas and concepts of statistics and uses spectroscopic examples to show how these concepts... more...

  • Dislocations in Solidsby Frank R.N. Nabarro; John P. Hirth

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 355.00

    Dislocations are lines of irregularity in the structure of a solid analogous to the bumps in a badly laid carpet. Like these bumps they can be easily moved, and they provide the most important mechanism by which the solid can be deformed. They also have a strong influence on crystal growth and on the electronic properties of semiconductors. · Influence... more...

  • Introduction to Dislocationsby Derek Hull; D. J. Bacon

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 79.95

    Introduction to Dislocations was first published in 1965 in a series aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students in metallurgy and materials science and related disciplines. At the time, the subject was maturing and it was expected that 'dislocation concepts' would remain a core discipline for a very long time. As expected, the book has been,... more...

  • Structure and Chemistry of Crystalline Solidsby Bodie Douglas; Shi-Ming Ho

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2007; US$ 229.00

    Presents an applicable system with simple notation, giving information about the structure and the chemical environment of ions or molecules. This book addresses the needs of people working with crystal structures in several fields. Early chapters provide an introduction to crystal structures and symmetry for readers with a variety of backgrounds. more...

  • Stress and Strain in Epitaxyby J.-P. Deville; M. Hanbücken

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 170.00

    This book contains keynote lectures which have been delivered at the 3rd Porquerolles' School on Surface Science, SIR2000 (Surfaces-Interfaces-Relaxation). The aim of this school was to review the main concepts necessary to understand the role of interfacial stress, strain and relaxation in crystal growth by heteroepitaxy. By bringing together scientists... more...

  • Advances in Crystal Growth Researchby Y. Furukawa; K. Nakajima; K. Sato

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 195.00

    The aim of this book is to provide a timely collection that highlights advances in current research of crystal growth ranging from fundamental aspects to current applications involving a wide range of materials. This book is published on the basis of lecture texts of the 11th International Summer School on Crystal Growth (ISSCG-11) to be held at Doshisha... more...

  • Computational Materials Engineeringby Koenraad George Frans Janssens; Dierk Raabe; Ernest Kozeschnik; Mark A Miodownik; Britta Nestler

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 110.00

    Computational Materials Engineering is an advanced introduction to the computer-aided modeling of essential material properties and behavior, including the physical, thermal and chemical parameters, as well as the mathematical tools used to perform simulations. Its emphasis will be on crystalline materials, which includes all metals. The basis of Computational... more...

  • Dislocations in Solidsby John P. Hirth

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 390.00

    New models for dislocation structure and motion are presented for nanocrystals, nucleation at grain boundaries, shocked crystals, interphase interfaces, quasicrystals, complex structures with non-planar dislocation cores, and colloidal crystals. A review of experimentally established main features of the magnetoplastic effect with their physical interpretation... more...

  • Crystallography and the World of Symmetryby Sanat K. Chatterjee

    Springer 2008; US$ 199.00

    Symmetry exists in realms from crystals to patterns, in external shapes of living or non-living objects, as well as in the fundamental particles and the physical laws that govern them. This work discusses the basis of the existence of aperiodicity manifested in the liquid crystals and also quasi-crystals. more...

  • Mesocrystals and Nonclassical Crystallizationby Helmut Coelfen; Markus Antonietti

    Wiley 2008; US$ 215.00

    Through both explanation and discussion, this title presents a complete review into mesocrystals, and accurately describes this relatively new study of established materials. This book also provides an introduction to other areas of crystallisation including self-assembly, classical crystallisation and colloidal crystals.  Key features: ... more...
