Description: The book reports on new scientific and technological developments involving:
1.the substitution of phenomenological knowledge by fundamental insight on the structure-property relations (e.g. nitriding and nitrocarburazing); 2.the modelling and control of various processes as, in particular, the classical quenching and tempering and the thermochemical processes; 3.the emergence of dedicated surface treatments, as those based on ion beams and the numerous ways for physical vapour deposition; and 4.the rise to maturity of vacuum and plasma technology including the application of (atmosphere) sensors of various kinds.

Description: Mechanical Alloying has recently been gathering world wide attention as a means of producing metastable and non-equilibrium alloy phases. There is a large potential for producing amorphous alloys by this technique. Mechanical alloying is also well suited for the production of nano-crystalline materials and oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) superalloys, as well as for the synthesis of metal nitrides and hydrides.

Description: The heterogeneity of a solid must be taken into account if the property under consideration is determined not only by the atomic short-range order but also by the spatial extent of regions with equal short-range order, the shape of these regions, the interface area between different regions, the correlation of shape and size of adjacent regions, the topological arrangement, etc. Such phenomena appear in most materials, e.g. in polycrystalline metals and alloys, powders, ceramics, porous materials, glasses and random composites.
