  • Nematic and Cholesteric Liquid Crystalsby Patrick Oswald; Pawel Pieranski

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 184.95

    Liquid crystals allow us to perform experiments that provide insight into fundamental problems of modern physics, such as phase transitions, frustration, elasticity, hydrodynamics, defects, growth phenomena, and optics (linear and non linear). This excellent volume meets the need for an up-to-date text on liquid crystals. Nematic and Cholesteric... more...

  • Frontiers in Crystal Engineeringby Edward R. T. Tiekink; Jagadese Vittal

    Wiley 2006; US$ 305.00

    Crystal engineering - where the myriad of intermolecular forces operating in the solid-state are employed to design new nano- and functional materials - is a key new technology with implications for catalysis, pharmaceuticals, synthesis and materials science. Frontiers in Crystal Engineering gathers personal perspectives, from international specialists... more...

  • High Resolution X-Ray Diffractometry And Topographyby D.K. Bowen; Brian K. Tanner

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 179.95

    The study and application of electronic materials has created an increasing demand for sophisticated and reliable techniques for examining and characterizing these materials. This comprehensive book looks at the area of x-ray diffraction and the modern techniques available for deployment in research, development, and production. It provides the theoretical... more...

  • Smectic and Columnar Liquid Crystalsby Patrick Oswald; Pawel Pieranski

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 184.95

    Liquid crystals allow us to perform experiments that provide insight into fundamental problems of modern physics, such as phase transitions, frustration, elasticity, hydrodynamics, defects, growth phenomena, and optics. Smectic and Columnar Liquid Crystals: Concepts and Physical Properties Illustrated by Experiments is a result of personal research... 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...

  • X-rays for Archaeologyby M. Uda; G. Demortier; I. Nakai

    Springer 2005; US$ 249.00

    The application of X-rays to objects of archaeology and insights into construction and chemical composition in a non-destructive manner date back to the discovery of radiation. This book contains measurement data taken with portable XRF and XRD, and data taken with accelerating ion beams and synchrotron radiations, and with their explanation. more...

  • Models of Itinerant Ordering in Crystalsby Jerzy Mizia; Grzegorz Górski

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 250.00

    This book is devoted to the mathematical description of interesting phenomena which occur in solids, such as ferromagnetism, antiferromagnetism and superconductivity. Superconductivity and its interaction with ferro and antiferromagnetism is of special importance since over the last 15 years the temperature of superconductivity existence has been raised... 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...

  • 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...

  • Crystallography and the World of Symmetryby Sanat K. Chatterjee

    Springer 2008; US$ 209.00

    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...
