Defect Structure in Nanomaterials (Hardcover) (J. Gubicza)
about this item
Nanostructured materials exhibit unique mechanical and physical properties compared with their coarse-grained counterparts, therefore these materials are currently a major focus in materials science. The production methods of nanomaterials affect the lattice defect structure (vacancies, dislocations, disclinations, stacking faults, twins and grain boundaries) that has a major influence on their mechanical and physical properties. In this book, the production routes of nanomaterials are described in detail, and the relationships between the processing conditions and the resulted defect structure as well as the defect-related properties (e.g. mechanical behavior, electrical resistance, diffusion, corrosion resistance, thermal stability, hydrogen storage capability etc.) are reviewed.
This book covers a wide range of nanomaterials including metals, alloys, ceramics, diamond, carbon nanotubes and their composites. This new edition is fully revised and updated, covering important advances that have taken place in recent years. In particular, new processing methods of nanomaterials are described in the chapter dealing with the manufacturing procedures of nanostructured materials. New chapters on (i) the experimental methods for the study of lattice defects, (ii) the defect structure in nanodisperse particles, and (iii) the influence of lattice defects on electrical, corrosion and diffusion properties are included, to further enhance what has become a leading reference for engineering, physics and materials science audiences.
