- World Scientific Publishing Company 1991; US$ 200.00
This book reviews comprehensively the technological, scientific, artistic and medical applications of liquid crystals. It starts with the basics of liquid crystals and covers electro-optical, thermo-optical, colour, polymeric, lyotropic, and scientific applications of liquid crystalline materials. It discusses the fabrication and operational principles... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 56.00
This book gives a systematic overview on the scientific fundamentals of crystal growth from the classical phenomenological description to the recent theoretical contributions of statistical physics such as studies on surface roughening and on the pattern formation in the diffusion-limited growth. The book emphasizes physical concepts as well as mathematical... more...
- Royal Society of Chemistry 2008; US$ 115.00
Powder diffraction is a widely used scientific technique in the characterization of materials with broad application in materials science, chemistry, physics, geology, pharmacology and archaeology. Powder Diffraction: Theory and Practice provides an advanced introductory text about modern methods and applications of powder diffraction in research and... more...
- Royal Society of Chemistry 2012; US$ 192.00
Discrete Element Methods (DEM) is a numerical technique for analysing the mechanics and physics of particulate systems. Originated in the late seventies for analysing geotechnical problems, it has seen significant development and is now employed extensively across disciplines. Produced in celebration of the 70th Birthday of Colin Thornton, this book... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 343.00
This proceedings volume contains research data from structural investigation of materials of high industrial value. Contents: Determination of Crystal Structure from Powder Diffraction by Rietveld Method; Development of Methods and Techniques in X-Ray, Electron and Neutron Diffraction; Crystallography of Phase Transformation, Martensitic Transformation... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 234.00
Liquid crystals are partially ordered systems without a rigid, long-range structure. The study of these materials covers a wide area: chemical structure, physical properties and technical applications. Due to their dual nature — anisotropic physical properties of solids and rheological behavior of liquids — and easy response to externally... more...
- Springer 2004; US$ 109.00
Despite the tremendous advances in the techniques and equipment for carrying out high-pressure crystallography, the application or exploration of the high-pressure variable in detailed structural studies remains rare. The chapters in this book provide a set of lecture notes and supplementary material for a course on high pressure crystallography. more...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
