Materials Research Society Symposium Proceedings, #654: Structure-Property Relationships of Oxide Surfaces and Interfaces: Volume 654
Synopses & Reviews
Computer modeling has reached a new level of sophistication, where it can be used to predict the structure and energy of interfaces in oxides. Nowhere is this activity more important than in these ceramic materials, where more applications are being discovered but the fundamental properties are often poorly known or not known at all. As more multicomponent oxides are exploited for their novel properties, both the experimentalist and the modeler will be challenged to predict or explain the behavior of these materials under a wide range of conditions. This book focuses on the interfaces of oxide-based materials. The areas of composite materials, materials synthesis, microscopy, defect chemistry and structure, nanomaterials technologies, thin-film synthesis and characterization, computer modeling, structural characterization and properties measurement of surfaces and internal interfaces are featured together with advances in computer modeling of oxide interfaces. A series on structural characterization of surfaces and interfaces utilizing advanced microscopic techniques is also provided, as is a series on the measurement of properties of real interfaces (diffusion, mechanical, electrical and magnetic).
Book News Annotation:
Discussing grain boundaries in oxides, interfaces in composites and multilayers, metal-oxide interfaces, surfaces, and structure-property relationships, this volume contains 26 papers from the November 2000 conference in Boston. Twenty posters are also included, on topics like thin film electrodes, microscopic structure and energetics, sacrificial anodes, atomic force and electron microscopy, oxidation, misfit accommodation mechanisms, segregation of fission products, substrate surface structures, oxide layers, and the relationships between film chemistry, structure, and mechanical properties.
