By Anthony A. Kelly, Kevin M. Knowles
The purpose of this re-creation of Crystallography and Crystal Defects is to speak the fashionable thoughts of crystallography in a transparent, succinct, demeanour and to place those options into use within the description of line and planar defects in crystalline fabrics, quasicrystals and crystal interfaces.
Since the 1st version of this publication, realizing of crystal defects similar to dislocations, stacking faults, dual, grain and interphase limitations and their impression at the mechanical and electric houses of fabrics has grown vastly, and this has been observed via a complete switch standard of ways during which either study and instructing are conducted by using the short electronic computing device. This re-creation takes account of this modification and a few new issues are integrated, for instance piezoelectricity, liquid crystals, nanocrystalline ideas, incommensurate fabrics and the constitution of foamed and amorphous fabrics. the subject of quasicrystalline fabrics has been thoroughly rewritten, and the information tables and references were absolutely updated.
Reinforcing its unrivalled place because the middle textual content for instructing crystallography and crystal defects, every one bankruptcy comprises challenge units with short numerical recommendations on the finish of the ebook. special labored suggestions, supplementary lecture fabric and desktop courses for crystallographic calculations are supplied online.
