Description: The continued development of advanced materials and processes requires an intimate understanding of diffusion mechanisms, and having the ability to model the diffusion-controlled phenomena which occur within materials during processing. Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Description: The question of the interrelationship between diffusion and stress is almost as old as the investigation of diffusion itself. Nowadays, the study of various diffusion and solid-state reaction processes in thin films and multilayers is a vital area of research activity in which, inevitably, diffusion-induced or thermal stresses are of primary importance.

Description: The diffusion of atoms is an inherent feature of matter, and the rules which describe the phenomenon are important from both the purely practical and the theoretical perspectives: it is a major rate-controlling process in phase transformations, crystal growth, recrystallization and recovery, creep, sintering, surface treatment and many other situations. Being typically a non-equilibrium macroscopic phenomenon, diffusion can be properly described in terms of the thermodynamics of irreversible processes. At the same time, phenomenological diffusion characteristics represent the mean values of microscopic parameters and reflect the microscopic structure of matter. In the latter case, they contribute to providing a deeper understanding of the physical background to the observed behavior of matter in general. Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Description: This ninth volume in the series covering the latest results in the field includes abstracts of papers which appeared between the publication of Annual Retrospective VIII (Volumes 245-246) and the end of January 2007 (journal availability permitting).
Description: These volumes contain an extensive body of carefully selected data, on diffusion in non-ferrous materials, gleaned from research published in leading journals during the past few decades. The materials covered include less-common as well as common metals, in both the almost-pure and highly-alloyed states, and the chosen data take account of the effects of various special conditions (thin films, strain, radiation, etc.) upon bulk, surface and pipe diffusion.
Description: This issue comprises an extensive body of selected data, on diffusion in iron-based materials, gleaned from research published in leading journals during the past 70 years. The materials covered range from the almost-pure metal, to high-alloy steels (including metallic glasses) and the data reflect the effect of special conditions (thin films, strain, etc.) upon bulk, surface and pipe diffusion.
Description: This eighth volume in the series covering the latest results in the field includes abstracts of papers which appeared between the publication of Annual Retrospective VII (Volumes 242-244) and the end of June 2006 (journal availability permitting).
Description: This substance is very much a material for the new millennium, since its new manifestation as a high-temperature superconductor can be dated precisely from the seminal 2001 Nature paper (1st March, p63), Superconductivity at 39K in Magnesium Diboride, by J.Nagamatsu, N.Nakagawa, T.Muranaka, Y.Zenitani and J.Akimitsu of the Physics Department of Aoyama-Gakuin University, Tokyo. Until then, it had been seen and used only as a rather nondescript ceramic/abrasive.
