Rhenium Disulfide
  D.J. Fisher/ 9781945291920/ Price:US$ 125.00
Book Cover All you want to know about Rhenium disulfide in an easy to read condensed format. Rhenium disulfide especially in low-dimensional form, is a subject of lively research into its electronic and optical properties. The field of 2D materials such as graphene and its analogues has been growing very rapidly. This class of materials also includes rhenium disulfide and rhenium diselenide, which belong to the transition-metal dichalcogenide family. Due to their reduced crystal symmetry, they exhibit distinct electrical and optical characteristics along certain in-plane crystal directions. The group-VI members such as molybdenum and tungsten are the most typical ones, but group-VII rhenium disulfide has been attracting most attention of late because of its unusual structural, electro-optical and chemical properties; especially an indirect-to-direct band-gap transition which occurs when thinned down from bulk to monolayer. The group-VI transition-metal dichalcogenides have a 1H, 2H, 3R or 1T structure, whereas ReS2 has a distorted 1T structure which imparts an in-plane anisotropy to its physical properties. Few other materials (black phosphorus, ReSe2, TiS3, ZrS3) exhibit such an in-plane structural anisotropy. This makes ReS2 unique among the transition-metal chalcogenides. Atomically thin rhenium disulphide is characterized by weak interlayer coupling and a distorted 1T structure, which leads to the anisotropy in optical and electrical properties. It also possesses structural and vibrational anisotropy, layer-independent electrical and optical properties and metal-free magnetism. In these respects, it differs from group-VI transition-metal dichalcogenides such as MoS2, MoSe2, WS2 and WSe2. It is already being used in solid-state electronics, catalysis, energy storage and energy-harvesting applications.
Modern Technologies of Thin Films Deposition

Point defects in group IV semiconductors
  S. Pizzini/ 9781945291227/ Price:US$ 95.00
Book Cover A self-consistent, microscopic model of individual- and -reacted point defects requires a reliable connection with the experimentally deduced structural, spectroscopic and thermodynamic properties of the defect centres, to allow their unambiguous identification. Aim of this book is to focus on the properties of defects in semiconductors of the fourth group under a physico-chemical approach, capable to demonstrate whether the full acknowledgement of their chemical nature could account for several problems encountered in practice or would suggest further experimental or theoretical accomplishments. It will be shown how difficult the fulfilment of self-consistency conditions can be, even today, after more than four decades of dedicated research work, especially in the case of compound semiconductors (SiC in this book), but also in the apparently simplest cases of silicon and germanium also because microscopic models do not account, jet, for defect interactions in real solids.
Radiation Effects in Silicon Carbide

The book reviews the most interesting, in the author¡¦s opinion, publications concerned with radiation defects formed in 6H-, 4H-, and 3C-SiC under irradiation with electrons, neutrons, and some kinds of ions. At the beginning, the SiC electrical parameters making this material promising for application in modern electronics are discussed. Specific features of the crystal structure of SiC are also considered. It is shown that, when wide-bandgap semiconductors are studied, it is necessary to take into account the temperature dependence of the carrier removal rate (£be), which is a standard parameter for determining the radiation hardness of semiconductors. The £be values obtained by irradiation of various SiC polytypes with n- and p-type of conductivity are analyzed in relation to the type and energy of irradiating particles. The possible physical mechanisms of compensation of the given material are considered. The influence exerted by the energy of charged particles on how radiation defects are formed and conductivity is compensated in semiconductors under irradiation is analyzed. Further, the possibility to produce controlled transformation of silicon carbide polytype is considered. The involvement of radiation defects in radiative and nonradiative recombination processes in SiC is analyzed. Data are also presented regarding the degradation of particular SiC electronic devices under the influence of radiation and a conclusion is made regarding the radiation resistance of SiC. Lastly, the radiation hardness of devices based on silicon and silicon carbide are compared.

Charge Density and Structural Characterization of Thermoelectric Materials
  R. Saravanan/ 9781945291005/ Price:US$ 125.00
Book Cover Thermoelectric materials permit the direct conversion of temperature differences into electric energy, and vice versa. They are therefore of highest technological interest in applications such as solid state coolers, waste heat recovery, sensors and detectors, and power generators including remote power generation. Thermoelectric materials are often called ¡§environmentally green¡¨, and for good reasons. Not only can they help generate electrical energy from waste gases as they are generated in such processes as home heating, industrial fabrication and automotive motion.

Hexaferrite Permanent Magnetic Materials
  Sami H Mahmood/ 9781945291067/ Price:US$ 125.00
Book Cover The relatively high metallicity of magnetic materials for practical applications imposes limitations for their efficient use due to their unfavorable characteristics. Accordingly, magnetic oxides with ferromagnetic properties emerged as the most widely used magnetic materials for practical applications, owing to their characteristic high resistivity and low eddy current losses, chemical stability, simplicity of production in mass quantities, and other favorable characteristics. An important class of these oxides is the class of hexagonal ferrites developed in the early 1950¡¦s, which dominated the world market of permanent magnet applications since the end of the 1980¡¦s. Among these ferrites, the magnetoplumbite (M-type) hexaferrite, is produced nowadays in large quantities at very competitive low prices, thus providing the permanent magnet market with probably the most cost-effective magnetic material.

SF02-457 Self Healing Materials.
  Sybrand van der Zwaag/ 9781614995135/ Price:EUR 135.00
Book Cover In 2006 the Dutch government funded an 8 year and 20 million euro research program on Self Healing Materials. The research was not to be restricted to one material class or one particular healing approach. It was to explore all opportunities to create self healing behavior in engineering and functional materials and to bring the new materials to a level where they could be tested in real life applications. At its launch, the IOP program (Innovatiegericht Onderzoeksprogramma) was the very first integrated multi-material approach to this field in the world. The research was to be conducted at Dutch universities working in collaboration with industry. With the IOP Self Healing Materials program coming to an end, this book presents the highlights of the pioneering research in the field of self healing materials in the Netherlands. Given the diversity of topics addressed, the book will be of value to all materials scientists working in the field of materials and ma-terials by design in particular, as well as industrial engineers and developers with an interest in increasing the reliability and reducing the maintenance of their products. The book will also be an inspiration to students and show them how an unspecified concept of self healing can be translated to new materials with exceptional behavior.

Manganese in Powder Metallurgy Steels.
  Salak, Andrej/ 9781907343742/ Price:¢G 95.00
The monograph introduces the data about the mechanical properties of sintered manganese steels published since 1948 up to the present time. The effect of all possible material, alloying and sintering factors on the properties of manganese steels which are in most cases on the level of those alloyed with nickel is discussed. The sintering of the steels was successfully carried out under laboratory and industrial conditions not fulfilling the thermodynamic requirements for the Mn-O system. The reduction - (self cleaning) effect of manganese vapour for the sintering atmosphere formed by sublimation due to manganese high vapour pressure is presented as the only possible mechanisms under which the sintering of manganese-containing steels takes place. It is stated conclusively that sintering under this mechanisms occurs without demanganisation and decarburization of the compacts in the atmosphere with the low dew point contrary to that with a high dew point adversely affecting the sintering and alloying process.

SF02-395 Approaches in Material Sampling.(With CD-ROM)
  Geelhoed, Bastiaan/ 9781607505525/ Price:EUR 55.00
Every company or institute that has to handle materials also has to deal with solving practical sampling problems. Those sampling problems include: establishing the number of samples to take, the size of the samples, and, at least equally important, the method by which the uncertainty caused by the sampling is estimated. In addition, there are various types of materials ranging from solids, liquids to gaseous materials. Also the objectives of sampling vary: sampling may be performed for quality control of raw materials, for environmental monitoring, for resource estimation in mining, or for many other possible purposes. No single approach can be expected to provide an answer in all scenarios. This book brings the different fundamental approaches to the problem of material sampling together. Five experts in the field of sampling have contributed chapters explaining each approach and its recent developments. These provide the underlying data as much as possible. In addition, tools are provided on the accompanying cd to allow the reader to verify a large number of data analyses presented in this publication. The book is intended for scientists working in the research area of material sampling and companies or institutions that have to solve practical sampling problems.

SF02-383 Modern Blast Furnace Ironmaking: An Introduction.
  Geerdes, Maarten/ 9781607500407/ Price:EUR 72.00
Modern Blast Furnace Ironmaking An Introduction Imprint: Delft University Press Authors: M. Geerdes, H. Toxopeus and C. Van Der Vliet September 2009, 176 pp., hardcover ISBN: 978-1-60750-040-7 NEW Price: US$104 / £á72 / ¢G65 This book contains a subject index. This book describes the principles of the blast furnace process and especially the control of the process. As a starting point, the blast furnace is seen as a simple iron ore smelter, while gradually the physical, chemical and metallurgical background of the blast furnace process is clarified. The book focuses on the control of the blast furnace process with respect to thermal control, gas flow control and casthouse operation. In this book, all essential process details are described and a special focus is on optimization of coal injection. The optimization of the blast furnace process is not only based on ¡¥best practice transfer¡¦, but also requires conceptual understanding as to why a measure works well in some cases and does not work in other situations. In other words: operational improvement is not only based on know¡Vhow, but on know¡Vwhy as well. This publication was and can be used as an introductory text for students of metallurgy as well as for blast furnace operators and management. The latter will benefit to solve operational problems and process optimization issues. The authors have very extensive experience as operators as well as consultants to many steel plants worldwide. With Modern blast furnace ironmaking - An Introduction the reader has a compact compendium of the blast furnace process available: by operators and for operators and for those who are preparing to become operators.

SF02-383 Technoscience in Progress: Managing the Uncertainty of Nanotechnology.
  Arnaldi, Simone/ 9781607500223/ Price:EUR 105.00
Nanotechnology seems to escape boundaries and definitions. The ¡§Rush to Nanoscale¡¨ spreads throughout different sites and arenas, involving a multiplicity of actors, meanings, and spaces in which they emerge. The ¡¥uncertainty of nanotechnology¡¦ appears to be both a condition and a consequence of this situation. This volume adds to the collective effort of charting the multiple and heterogeneous dimensions that characterise nanotechnology, by analysing the numerous modalities through which different stakeholders and actors provide definitions, attribute meaning and sense to nano-enabled innovations. The chapters of the book attempt to highlight how nanotechnologies, their discourse, and their actual and potential implications cannot be isolated in laboratories, factories, markets, and separate discussion arenas. Also, the volume examines how it is apparently not possible to bind and/or confine the definition of nanotechnology by referring exclusively to present-day research and applications, as well as to geographical, cultural, and even disciplinary boundaries. Considered together, this collection of essays suggests that the ¡¥societal experiment¡¦ of nanotechnology has to be explored with a vocabulary that is not just scientific and technical, in order to cross the frontiers between multiple domains, actors, identities, translations, and negotiation processes that occur in the nanotechnology field.

In addition, four principles of superconductivity valid for any type of superconductivity are introduced in Chapter 4. The book is mainly addressed to specialists in materials science and in the field of superconductivity. At the same time, students will also benefit from reading the first nine chapters of the book.

Internal Friction of Materials.
  Puskar, A./ 9781898326502/ Price:¢G 75.00
Without understanding the nature and mechanisms of anelasticity and the effect of various factors on internal friction, it is difficult to solve the problems of using internal friction measurement for evaluating the structural stability of alloys, cyclic microplasticity and for better understanding the processes associated with the response of materials to single or repeated loading. The author presents important new results for the relationship between internal friction and the defect of the elasticity modulus with many principal processes such as plastic deformation, effect of temperature of plastic deformation, effects on the structural stability of alloys and composites up to cyclic microplasticity. The existence of critical strain amplitudes is discussed and supported by experiments, and attention is given to the link of cyclic microplasticity with dislocation density and activation volume of plastic deformation up to the effect of individual factors on the cyclic plastic response of the material. The relationship of the process of mechanical fatigue of the material with internal friction and the defect of the elasticity modulus is discussed. The author proposes a new fatigue life equation which has been verified by a large number of experiments.
