Description: This comprehensive publication presents most recent results, and covers practically all aspects of powder diffraction. Part 1 contains contributions dealing with powder diffraction methods, and the larger second part comprises contributions which deal with the application of powder-diffraction methods to specific problems in the physics and chemistry of solids.

Description: Among the various contributions are major papers covering the topics of bulk metallic glasses, GMR in mechanically alloyed materials, nanostructures via melt-spun precursors, mechanical grinding, mechanosynthesis and mechanochemistry. Progress in the area of sintering and compaction techniques is reported. The magnetic, mechanical and electrochemical properties of several nanocrystalline materials are discussed. Significant progress is also reported in the modeling and understanding of basic mechanisms of fabrication processes. Defects and grain boundaries in nanocrystalline materials remain important topics, and are the subject of in-depth consideration.

Description: The physics of ordered materials is much better understood than that of disordered materials. The lack of a long-range periodic structure makes it difficult to develop the theory of disordered phases. It is not surprising that it is often found difficult to interpret experimental data on these systems.

Description: The present work addresses every aspect - from experiment to modelling - of the physical metallurgy of aluminium alloys; with particular emphasis being placed on processing, microstructures and final properties. The entire gamut of material applications is covered here, including transportation, packaging and building, and all Al-based materials are considered, such as Al-Li alloys, laminates, composites, and ultrafine structures prepared using conventional or novel techniques.

Description: The aim of the present collection is to foster exchanges between research groups having an interest in solidification under both micro- and macro-gravity conditions. Every important aspect of research in the various fields is covered in its nine sections. This is a uniquely valuable source of information on, and of insights into, solidification processes.

Description: The role of non-destructive evaluation is changing dramatically, and it has already expanded beyond its historical mission of detecting macroscopic defects in structures and in finished components which had usually spent a considerable time in service.

Description: The field of crystal growth has developed steadily with the rapid progress in microelectronics. The purpose of this book is to present a survey of the most recent results related to this subject area. The book will serve as both an up-to-date review for experts and as a reference work on crystal growth for younger scientists and for those who wish to keep track of the advances and technological trends in the field.
