  • Fast Scanning Calorimetryby Christoph Schick; Vincent Mathot

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 279.00

    In the past decades, the scan rate range of calorimeters has been extended tremendously at the high end, from approximately 10 up to 10 000 000 °C/s and more. The combination of various calorimeters and the newly-developed Fast Scanning Calorimeters (FSC) now span 11 orders of magnitude, by which many processes can be mimicked according to the time... more...

  • Spin Glassesby Marco Baity Jesi

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis addresses the surprising features of zero-temperature statics and dynamics of several spin glass models, including correlations between soft spins that arise spontaneously during avalanches, and the discovery of localized states that involve the presence of two-level systems. It also presents the only detailed historiographical research... more...

  • Nano-thermitesby Eric Lafontaine; Marc Comet

    Wiley 2016; US$ 145.00 US$ 125.67

  • Advanced Engineering Materials and Modelingby Ashutosh Tiwari; N. Anul Murugan; Rajeev Ahuja

    Wiley 2016; US$ 225.00 US$ 195.00

    The engineering of materials with advanced features is driving the research towards the design of innovative materials with high performances. New materials often deliver the best solution for structural applications, precisely contributing towards the finest combination of mechanical properties and low weight. The mimicking of nature’s principles... more...

  • Technology of Dispersed Systems and Materialsby Naum B. Uriev

    Wiley 2016; US$ 68.95 US$ 59.76

    This practical guide is devoted to the field of physical chemistry and chemical technology of disperse systems and materials. It provides a novel approach describes and allows to understand the physical chemistry of structure formation and materials synthesis under dynamic conditions. Substantiated by experimental results, the general theory is developed... more...

  • Assessing Nanoparticle Risks to Human Healthby Gurumurthy Ramachandran

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 200.00

    Assessing Nanoparticle Risks to Human Health provides a systematic overview of nanoparticle risks and considers the limitations of this paradigm in a context where extreme uncertainties prevail. As well as exploring conventional risk assessment methodology, the contributing authors investigate several alternate approaches. The adequacy of current... more...

  • Thermal Transport in Strongly Correlated Rare-Earth Intermetallic Compoundsby Heike Pfau

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis explores thermal transport in selected rare-earth-based intermetallic compounds to answer questions of great current interest. It also sheds light on the interplay of Kondo physics and Fermi surface changes.  By performing thermal conductivity and electrical resistivity measurements at temperatures as low as 25mK, the author demonstrates... more...

  • Triboluminescenceby David O. Olawale; Okenwa O. I. Okoli; Ross S. Fontenot; William A. Hollerman

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00

    This book expounds on progress made over the last 35 years in the theory, synthesis, and application of triboluminescence for creating smart structures. It presents in detail the research into utilization of the triboluminescent properties of certain crystals as new sensor systems for smart engineering structures, as well as triboluminescence-based... more...
