Description: Positron Annihilation - ICPA-10 presents new results and ideas of researchers who seek more profound understanding of the nature of positron annihilation. All these scientific and technological thoughts are included in these two-volume proceedings, which contain 7 review talks, 203 contributed papers (among them, 20 are invited), and 3 summary talks. The volume is complete with keyword and author indices.

Description: Lasers are playing an increasingly important role in various fields of semiconductor and device technology. Of special significance is their contribution to the advanced technologies that are needed for economic solutions in photovoltaics. There, lasers are used in processing and characterization of photovoltaic materials, solar cells and module technology.

Description: While the superplastic phenomenon was first demonstrated in scientific experiments conducted in the United Kingdom, much of the early systematic work in this area was performed in Russia. This volume covers the recent developments concerning superplastictity phenomena in many materials classes of current interest.

Description: These Proceedings provide a picture of the current knowledge and technology of heat treatment and surface engineering. Most recent developments concerning the thermodynamics and kinetics of the underlying processes are presented here. Special emphasis is placed on process control and computer modelling.

Description: This book reflects quite clearly the expansion of the field of "textures" as well as the rapid growth of the texture community. During the recent years, the scope of this field has been expanded to virtually all crystalline and even partly crystalline materials including intermetallic compounds, ceramics, polymers as well as multiphase composites and even fullerenes.

Description: In a majority of cases, the various processes which give rise to matter transport lead to the formation of new interfaces and to the concommitant development of new phases on either side of these newly created interfaces. The latter play a particularly important role, in the sense that the reactions that produce the new phases take place there.

Description: Improvement of only the properties of the surface can largely improve the performance of the entire workpiece. Hence, engineering the surface by the application of surface layers has become of major importance.
Two, principally different routes can be followed to obtain a surface layer: (i) treating the surface of the original material (laser/electron beam hardening, plasma treatments, and thermomechanical treatments like carburizing and nitriding) or (ii) covering the surface with another material.

Description: Within the last few decades, advances in solid-state chemistry have resulted in substantial progress towards a better understanding of the solid state, and have even led to the development of some predictive capablities in crystal chemistry. Nonetheless, in more recent years, entirely new ways of thinking have appeared. The term "soft chemistry" or "chimie douce", is often applied in a general manner to refer to these new routes, these new ways of thinking.
