  • Membrane-Assisted Crystallization Technologyby Enrico Drioli; Gianluca Di Profio; Efrem Curcio

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2015; US$ 122.00

    This book covers all the basic and applied aspects of crystallization processes based on membrane technology. Synthesis and processing of membrane materials are discussed and reviewed, while mass/heat transport and control are treated in view of the non-reversible thermodynamic principles and statistical thermodynamics. Engineering process design and... more...

  • Active Plasmonic Nanomaterialsby Luciano De Sio

    Pan Stanford 2015; US$ 149.95

    Plasmonic nanoparticles (NPs) represent an outstanding class of nanomaterials that have the capability to localize light at the nanoscale by exploiting a phenomenon called localized plasmon resonance . The book is aimed at reviewing recent efforts devoted to utilize NPs in many research fields, such as photonics, optics, and plasmonics. In this framework,... more...

  • Mechanics of Anisotropic Materialsby Jacek J. Skrzypek; Artur W Ganczarski

    Springer International Publishing 2015; Not Available

    The book is focused on constitutive description of mechanical behaviour of engineering materials: both conventional (polycrystalline homogeneous isotropic or anisotropic metallic materials) and non-conventional (heterogeneous multicomponent anisotropic composite materials). Effective material properties at the macro-level depend on both the material... more...

  • Dancing with Lightby Haifeng Yu

    Pan Stanford 2015; US$ 149.95

    Liquid crystal (LC) displays dominating in the present market of flat panel displays are generally based on interactions of light and LCs. Recent progress in this field indicates that integrating photochromic molecules into LC materials enables one to photomanipulate unique features such as photoinduced phase transition, photocontrolled alignment,... more...

  • Metal-Induced Crystallizationby Zumin Wang; Lars P. H. Jeurgens; Eric J. Mittemeijer

    Pan Stanford 2015; US$ 179.95

    Crystalline semiconductors in the form of thin films are crucial materials for many modern, advanced technologies in fields such as microelectronics, optoelectronics, display technology, and photovoltaic technology. Crystalline semiconductors can be produced at surprisingly low temperatures (as low as 120 ?C) by crystallization of amorphous semiconductors,... more...

  • Hydrogen Bonded Supramolecular Structuresby Zhanting Li; Li-Zhu Wu

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 129.00

    This book covers the advances in the studies of hydrogen-bonding-driven supramolecular systems ámade over the past decade. It is divided into four parts, with the first introducing the basics of hydrogen bonding and important hydrogen bonding patterns in solution as well as in the solid state. The second part covers molecular recognition and supramolecular... more...

  • Probing Crystal Plasticity at the Nanoscalesby Arief Budiman

    Springer Singapore 2014; US$ 54.99

    This Brief highlights the search for strain gradients and geometrically necessary dislocations as a possible source of strength for two cases of deformation of materials at small scales: nanoindented single crystal copper and uniaxially compressed single crystal submicron gold pillars. When crystalline materials are mechanically deformed in small... more...

  • Symmetry and Physical Properties of Crystalsby CÚcile Malgrange; Christian Ricolleau; Michel Schlenker

    Springer Netherlands 2014; US$ 119.99

    Crystals are everywhere, from natural crystals (minerals) through the semiconductors and magnetic materials in electronic devices and computers or piezoelectric resonators at the heart of our quartz watches to electro-optical devices. Understanding them in depth is essential both for pure research and for their applications. This book provides a... more...

  • The Role of Convection and Fluid Flow in Solidification and Crystal Growthby D. T. J. Hurle; E. Jakeman

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 31.95

    Physicochemical Hydrodynamics: The Role of Convection and Fluid Flow in Solidification and Crystal Growth focuses on the processes, methodologies, reactions, and approaches involved in solidification and crystal growth brought about by convection and fluid flow. The selection first offers information on the techniques of crystal growth, convection... more...

  • Handbook of the Band Structure of Elemental Solidsby Dimitris A. Papaconstantopoulos

    Springer US 2014; US$ 349.00

    This handbook consists of tabulations of the Slater-Koster parameters of 53 elements in the periodic table, including metals, semiconductors, and insulators. more...
