Author: Donald M. Mattox
Brand: Brand: William Andrew

This updated version of the popular handbook further explains all aspects of physical vapor deposition (PVD) process technology from the characterizing and preparing the substrate material, through deposition processing and film characterization, to post-deposition processing. The emphasis of the new edition remains on the aspects of the process flow that are critical to economical deposition of films that can meet the required performance specifications, with additional information to support the original material.

The book covers subjects seldom treated in the literature: substrate characterization, adhesion, cleaning and the processing. The book also covers the widely discussed subjects of vacuum technology and the fundamentals of individual deposition processes. However, the author uniquely relates these topics to the practical issues that arise in PVD processing, such as contamination control and film growth effects, which are also rarely discussed in the literature. In bringing these subjects together in one book, the reader can understand the interrelationship between various aspects of the film deposition processing and the resulting film properties. The author draws upon his long experience with developing PVD processes and troubleshooting the processes in the manufacturing environment, to provide useful hints for not only avoiding problems, but also for solving problems when they arise. He uses actual experiences, called "war stories", to emphasize certain points. Special formatting of the text allows a reader who is already knowledgeable in the subject to scan through a section and find discussions that are of particular interest. The author has tried to make the subject index as useful as possible so that the reader can rapidly go to sections of particular interest. Extensive references allow the reader to pursue subjects in greater detail if desired.

The book is intended to be both an introduction for those who are new to the field and a valuable resource to those already in the field. The discussion of transferring technology between R&D and manufacturing provided in Appendix 1, will be of special interest to the manager or engineer responsible for moving a PVD product and process from R&D into production. Appendix 2 has an extensive listing of periodical publications and professional societies that relate to PVD processing. The extensive Glossary of Terms and Acronyms provided in Appendix 3 will be of particular use to students and to those not fully conversant with the terminology of PVD processing or with the English language.

  • Fully revised and updated to include the latest developments in PVD process technology
  • ‘War stories’ drawn from the author’s extensive experience emphasize important points in development and manufacturing
  • Appendices include listings of periodicals and professional societies, terms and acronyms, and material on transferring technology between R&D and manufacturing

Solids and Surfaces: A Chemist's View of Bonding in Extended Structures

Solids and Surfaces: A Chemist's View of Bonding in Extended Structures Lowest new price: $128.64
Lowest used price: $131.50
List price: $180.00
Author: Roald Hoffmann

This unique book shows how chemistry and physics come together inthe solid state and on surfaces. Using a lively, graphic,descriptive approach, it teaches chemists the language that isnecessary to understand the electronic structure of extendedsystems. And, at the same time, it demonstrates how a chemical,frontier-orbital, approach to solid state and surface bonding andreactivity may be constructed.

The book begins with the language of crystal orbitals, bandstructures and densities of states. The tools for moving back fromthe highly delocalized orbitals of the solid are then built up in atransparent manner; they include decompositions of the densities ofstates and crystal orbital overlap populations. Using these tools,the book shapes a meeting ground between detailed quantummechanical calculations and a chemical frontier orbital perspec-tive. Applications include a general picture of chemisorption,bond-breaking and making in the solid state, bonding in metals, theelectronic structure of selected conducting and supercon- ductingstructures, dissociation, migration and coupling on surfaces andthe forces controlling deformation of extended systems.

List price: $120.00
Author: Chris Mocella
Brand: CRC Press

Primarily driven by advancing technology and concerns for safety, advancement in the world of pyrotechnics and high-energy materials has exploded in the past 25 years. The promulgation of new government regulations places new and more stringent restrictions on the materials that may be used in energetic mixtures. These regulations now mandate numerous training programs, and initiate other actions, such as OSHA’s Process Safety Management standard, intended to eliminate accidents and incidents. Unfortunately, the US lacks an organized, broad-range academic program to cover the science and use of energetic materials and educate the next generation of pyrotechnicians.

Designed as a bridge to allow a smooth and confident transition for personnel coming from a chemistry background into the practical world of explosives, Chemistry of Pyrotechnics: Basic Principles and Theory, Second Edition emphasizes basic chemical principles alongside practical, hands-on knowledge in the preparation of energetic mixtures. It examines the interactions between and adaptations of pyrotechnics to changing technology in areas such as obscuration science and low-signature flame emission.

Much more than a simple how-to guide, the book discusses chemical and pyrotechnic principles, components of high-energy mixtures, and elements of ignition, propagation, and sensitivity. It offers heat compositions, including ignition mixes, delays, thermites, and propellants and investigates the production of smoke and sound as well as light and color.

Promoting the growth and expansion of pyrotechnics as a science, Chemistry of Pyrotechnics: Basic Principles and Theory, Second Edition provides practitioners with the ability to apply chemical principles and logic to energetic materials and thereby make the field as productive, useful, and safe as possible.

Geometrical Derivatives of Energy Surfaces and Molecular Properties (Nato Science Series C:) Lowest new price: $137.53
Lowest used price: $29.50
List price: $249.99
Brand: Jack Simons

The development and computational implementation of analytical expres­ sions for the low-order derivatives of electronic energy surfaces and other molecular properties has undergone rapid growth in recent years. It is now fairly routine for chemists to make use of energy gradient information in locating and identifying stable geometries and transition states. The use of second analytical derivative (Hessian or curvature) expressions is not yet routine, and third and higher energy derivatives as well as property (e.g., dipole moment, polarizability) derivatives are just beginning to be applied to chemical problems. This NATO Advanced Research Workshop focused on analyzing the re­ lative merits of various strategies for deriving the requisite analyti­ cal expressions, for computing necessary integral derivatives and wave­ function parameter derivatives, and for efficiently coding these expres­ sions on conventional scalar machines and vector-oriented computers. The participant list contained many scientists who have been instrumen­ tal in bringing this field to fruition as well as eminent scientists who have broad knowledge and experience in quantum chemistry in general.
