Author: Alan Everett
The fourth edition of this well established text brings the subject up-to-date with environmental legislation and provides a thorough understanding of the surface technologies of all materials used for finishes. It also aims to minimise the use of finishes which have shorter lives and hence need renewing more frequently. As the variety of materials used for finishes is so large, they have been grouped into their engineering categories of ceramics, polymers, metals and composites to aid understanding of their structure, behaviour and ability to resist degradation.
Finishes is an essential textbook for Materials units on building, architecture, surveying and related degree and postgraduate courses, and for students of BTEC HNC/D building and surveying.

Surface analysis deals with the characterisation and understanding of the outer layers of substrates. How they react, look and function are all of interest to the surface scientists. From the basic principles of surface analysis this book considers the various techniques used to analyse surfaces and the theory required to understand the results. The book begins with a general introduction to the sometimes complex area of surface analysis, and continues with chapters by leading experts on the many different techniques currently used, including, for example, SIMS, ESCA, Auger and vibrational spectroscopy. Anyone with a basic understanding of the subject will discover, in one single volume, the rudiments of any particular technique and the answers to commonly asked questions.

A straightforward, uncomplicated, and concept-driven undergraduate-level text covering solid surfaces and their properties on both small and large scales. It looks at how atoms and molecules interact with surfaces and how and why they subsequently react and/or behave. It begins with a discussion of the clean surface, its electronic and structural properties, then goes on to describe adsorption, desorption, reactions and reactivity at the surface, kinetics and thermodynamics, and photochemistry. In the final section, the growth and properties of ultrathin films is introduced.

Author: James A. Ogilvy
This book provides an up-to-date review of the theories that have been developed for the study of acoustic, elastic and electromagnetic wave scattering from randomly rough surfaces. Theory of Wave Scattering from Random Rough Surfaces is the first comprehensive summary, in one volume, of all the intensive studies thta have been undertaken over the last few decades. Emphasis is placed on those theories which lead to soluble equations and which are of practical interest. Experimental data are used to illustrate the usefulness of the different theories, and areas where future progress might be possible are also outlined. After covering some of the problems associated with random rough surfaces the author describes the well-known perturbation and Kirchhoff approaches, showing their regimes of validity. Methods for multiple scattering are then considered, emphasising those techniques which are likely to lead to solutions for problems of practical interest. Further considerations include multiple scales of roughness, surface self-shadowing and field statistics. Numerical simulation techniques are also discussed, showing the power of this approach for solving otherwise intractable problems. These techniques have only recently been developed and have not previously been discussed in book form. Theory of Wave Scattering from Random Rough Surfaces will be invaluable to graduate scientists and engineers working on wave scattering from rough surfaces, whether this be for radar, sonar, ultrasonic or optical applications.

The precipitation of metal oxides from aqueous solutions creates nanoparticles with interesting solid state properties, thus building a bridge between solution chemistry and solid state chemistry. This book is the first monograph to deal with the formation of metal oxides from aqueous solutions with emphasis on the formation and physical chemistry of nanoparticles.
Metal Oxide Chemistry and Synthesis: From Solution to Solid State
* Provides a comprehensive introduction to the synthesis of finely divided materials
* Presents the chemistry, physics and applications of these materials
* Builds a bridge between classical solution chemistry and new developments in solid state chemistry
* Introduces an important new area in inorganic chemistry
Part I examines the mechanism of condensation of aqueous cations leading to polynuclear species or lattices, and rationalizes the behaviour of cations in precipitation phenomena by identifying pathways from soluble species to solids. The cation complex is also analysed in relation to the synthesis of some technologically interesting polymetallic oxides, e.g. ferroelectric, ferrimagnetic and supraconductor materials.
Part II is devoted to the surface chemistry of oxide particles. The basic concepts relating to the reactivity of the oxide-solution interface are introduced and applied to various adsorption phenomena, such as aggregation, stability of particle size against ripening, etc. These properties are exploited for the synthesis of nanomaterials for a broad range of applictions such as ceramic powders, catalysts and nanocomposites. This will also be of interest to those wishing to understand geochemical and some biological processes.
As well as being invaluable to researchers and postgraduate students of inorganic chemistry, this book will also be appreciated by solid-state chemists, materials scientists and colloid chemists with an interest in metal oxides.

"Hands are useless if there are no eyes to see what is obvious." -M. V. Lomonosov Dear Reader, I invite you to open this book and step on the semiconductor surface, where the processes that form the subject of the book come into play. The surface of the semiconductor is attracting more and more interest among researchers, in fact researchers in two different fields. These are notably the physicists and engineers engaged in research in semi conductor physics and the making of semiconductor devices. The entire industry of semiconductor instruments hinges on the problem of the surface. The quality of semiconductor devices, whose use is growing steadily, depends essentially on the properties of the surface. The instability of these properties and their uncon trollable alterations with temperature and under the influence of environmental conditions result in a lack of stability in the performance of semiconductor devices, hence the high percentage of waste in their industrial production. The methods used in factory laboratories to prevent such waste are largely empirical. The properties of the surface, the nature of the physicochemical processes that take place on it, and the role of environmental factors still remain obscure. A major task of the semiconductor industry is to learn to control the properties of the surface.
