Metals and Alloys Oxide Semiconductors for Solar Energy Conversion Titanium Dioxide Janusz Nowotny University of Western Sydney, Australia Series: Green Chemistry and Chemical Engineering

“The present book provides a comprehensive survey of defect chemistry and defect-related properties of oxides, including electronic structure, charge transport, diffusion, and segregation. … [This] book is probably the only survey on semiconducting and photocatalytic properties of TiO2 at present, particularly with respect to inclusion of the importance of defect chemistry. The research of the author in this area has attracted the prestigious award of the International Association for Hydrogen Energy. This book should be welcomed by the large research community interested in oxide semiconductors in general and TiO2 in particular, as well as the growing community interested in photocatalysis.” —Professor Eric D. Wachsman, University of Maryland

“This book of Prof. Nowotny is addressing the increasingly urgent need for a treatise on oxide semiconductors in general and TiO2-based semiconductors in particular. … This book, which is the first extensive survey on the science of TiO2, will be of great help to the research community involved in the studies of the properties of TiO2.” —Professor Sebastian Fiechter, Helmholtz-Centre Berlin for Materials and Energy

Oxide semiconductors, including titanium dioxide (TiO2), are increasingly being considered as replacements for silicon in the development of the next generation of solar cells. Oxide Semiconductors for Solar Energy Conversion: Titanium Dioxide presents the basic properties of binary metal oxide semiconductors and the performance-related properties of TiO2 as they relate to solar energy. The book provides a general background on oxide semiconductors based on binary oxides and their solid solutions, including electronic and ionic conductors. It covers several aspects of solid-state electrochemistry of oxides, such as defect chemistry, and defect-related properties, such as electrical properties, diffusion, segregation, and reactivity. The author also takes a pioneering approach in considering bulk versus surface semiconducting properties, showing how they are different due to the effect of segregation. One of the first on semiconducting, photocatalytic, and photoelectrochemical properties of TiO2 and its solid solutions with donor- and acceptor-type ions, the book discusses defect chemistry of TiO2 in terms of defect equilibria and defect-related properties, including electrical properties, self and chemical diffusion, surface properties, segregation, and reactivity and photoreactivity with oxygen, water, and microbial agents. The

text also illustrates the use of TiO2 as an emerging material for solar energy conversion systems, including the generation of hydrogen fuel by photoelectrochemical water splitting, the photocatalytic purification of water, and the generation of photovoltaic electricity. In addition, it presents defect disorder diagrams for the formation of TiO2-based semiconductors with controlled properties. Encompassing the areas of solid-state science, surface chemistry, and photocatalysis, this book reflects the increasing awareness of the importance of structural imperfections, such as point defects, in understanding the properties of metal oxides, specifically TiO2-based semiconductors. • Presents a comprehensive survey on the properties of oxide semiconductors, including defect chemistry, electrical properties, diffusion, segregation, and reactivity • Compares surface versus bulk semiconducting properties of oxide • Provides the first treatise on TiO2 semiconductors, covering structure, nonstoichiometry, anisotropy, defect equilibria, defect diagrams, electrical properties, diffusion, segregation, surface properties, reactivity, and photoreactivity • Discusses the photocatalytic purification of water using solar energy • Describes the photoelectrochemical generation of hydrogen fuel by water splitting Catalog no.

Metals and Alloys Flat-Rolled Steel Processes Advanced Technologies

Indium Nitride and Related Alloys Edited by

Edited by

Vladimir B. Ginzburg

T.D. Veal and C.F. McConville

International Rolling Mill Consultants, Pennsylvania, USA

University of Warwick, Coventry, UK

Throughout the last two decades, the flat-steel production industry has experienced great success with the introduction of new technologies and manufacturing advances for both hot and cold steel-rolling. These improvements are resulting in significantly reduced production costs and better product quality. Recent consolidation of the steel industry—which has led to improved sharing of technological breakthroughs between plants—is creating an optimal atmosphere for the implementation of advances. An assessment of industry progress, Flat-Rolled Steel Processes: Advanced Technologies details these improvements, assembling input from 62 international contributors specializing in various areas of research and development of steel production technology and manufacturing of flat steel products. It describes the challenges and the latest solutions to problems in four major areas:

W.J. Schaff

• New concepts and modernization of rolling mills • Modeling of flat-rolling processes • Measurement, automation, and process control • Strip profile and flatness control Written for a broad audience, each chapter familiarizes readers with a different aspect of the latest theoretical and practical developments in the field. With its roots in the series of technical publications that summarize and review manufacturing developments for flat-rolled steel products, this volume explores the significant developments that are modernizing automation, process control, mathematical modeling, and quality-monitoring systems in flat-rolling processes. This includes the introduction of computer-based technology in both new and existing conventional rolling mills. Providing expert insight and analysis related to technological improvements, this book will help readers understand the current state of flat steel production, how it evolved, and its future direction.

Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA

Written by recognized leaders in this dynamic and rapidly expanding field, Indium Nitride and Related Alloys provides a clear and comprehensive summary of the present state of knowledge in indium nitride (InN) research. It elucidates and clarifies the often confusing and contradictory scientific literature to provide valuable and rigorous insight into the structural, optical, and electronic properties of this quickly emerging semiconductor material and its related alloys. Drawing from both theoretical and experimental perspectives, it provides a thorough review of all data since 2001 when the band gap of InN was identified as 0.7 eV. The superior transport and optical properties of InN and its alloys offer tremendous potential for a wide range of device applications, including high-efficiency solar cells and chemical sensors. Indeed, the now established narrow band gap nature of InN means that the InGaN alloys cover the entire solar spectrum and InAlN alloys span from the infrared to the ultraviolet. However, with unsolved problems including high free electron density, difficulty in characterizing ptype doping, and the lack of a lattice-matched substrate, indium nitride remains perhaps the least understood III-V semiconductor. Covering the epitaxial growth, experimental characterization, theoretical understanding, and device potential of this semiconductor and its alloys, this book is essential reading for both established researchers and those new to the field.

Coatings & Thin Films Magneto Luminous Chemical Vapor Deposition

TwoDimensional Nanostructures

Hirotsugu Yasuda

Mahmood Aliofkhazraei

University of Missouri-Columbia, USA

Tarbiat Modares University, Iran

Series: Green Chemistry and Chemical Engineering

NANOSMAT Ltd, United Kingdom

The magneto luminous chemical vapor deposition (MLCVD) method is the perfect example of the "front-end green process." It employs an entirely new process that expends the minimum amount of materials in gas phase, yields virtually no effluent, and therefore requires no environmental remediation. Unlike the "back-end green process," which calls for add-on processes to deal with effluent problems, the newer MLCVD approach is a completely different phenomenon that has never been adequately described, until now. Dispelling previous misconceptions and revealing new areas for investigation, Magneto Luminous Chemical Vapor Deposition describes the key process of dielectric breakdown of gas molecules under the influence of a magnetic field. It emphasizes behavioral distinctions between molecular gasses that cause plasma polymerization (such as methane and trimethylsilane) and mono-atomic gases (e.g., helium and argon) when dealing with the dielectric breakdown of the gas phase under low pressure. The author also reveals his minimum perturbation theory of biocompatibility. This is based on the realization that nanofilms prepared using MLCVD have unique, stable interfacial characteristics necessary to achieve a surface that can be tolerated in various biological environments. The author presents alternating views based on NASA’s recent discovery that a magnetic field burst from the earth triggers the inception of the aurora borealis. Detailing similarities between this phenomenon and the inception of the magneto luminous gas phase described in this book, the author proposes that proof of the one occurrence could shed light on the other. Expanding on the author’s previous works, this book introduces new discoveries, highlights the newfound errors of previous assumptions, and juxtaposes many alternative views and anomalies associated with the field.

Nasar Ali “… an excellent source of information for the hottest research topic of our decade.” —Ioannis Remediakis, University of Crete, Greece

After the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene," even more research and development efforts have been focused on two-dimensional nanostructures. Illustrating the importance of this area in future applications, Two-Dimensional Nanostructures covers the fabrication methods and properties of these materials. The authors begin with discussions on the properties, size effect, applications, classification groups, and growth of nanostructures. They then describe various characterization and fabrication methods, such as spectrometry, low-energy electron diffraction, physical and chemical vapor deposition, and molecular beam epitaxy. The remainder of the text focuses on mechanical, chemical, and physical properties and fabrication methods, including a new mechanical method for fabricating graphene layers and a model for relating the features and structures of nanostructured thin films. With companies already demonstrating the capabilities of graphene in a flexible touchscreen and a 150 GHz transistor, nanostructures are on their way to replacing silicon as the materials of choice in electronics and other areas. This book aids you in understanding the current chemical, mechanical, and physical processes for producing these "miracle materials." Catalog no.

Materials Processing

Tribology of Interface Layers Hooshang Heshmat Mohawk Innovative Technology, Inc., Albany, New York, USA

Many tribological devices act as viable bearings in contrast to basic hydrodynamic theory. Similarly, powder films possess quasi-hydrodynamic features that enable them to act as conventional fluid film bearings. These phenomena have led to a novel definition of lubricants as intermediate layers, which are detailed in this book. It illustrates that the various lubrication modes, from dry to hydrodynamic to powder lubrication, overlap to such a degree that they exist on a tribological spectrum. Based on experimental and theoretical work, this text shows how the interdependence of powder and hydrodynamic lubrication exemplify this continuum in tribological processes. • Shows how submicron powder lubricants share similar characteristics with conventional fluid films • Explains how, instead of being harmful, debris produced by wear can actually be made to act as a lubricant • Explores the presence of similar tribological modalities in different modes of operation • Discusses the technology of powder lubrication and its dependence on hydrodynamic lubrication • Offers experimental data on the rheology of triboparticulate films, as well as design guidelines regarding power lubrication Selected Contents: Historical Perspective. The Rheology of Interface Layers.The Phenomenology of Lubrication. Direct Contact–Hydrodynamic Continuum. Hydrodynamic–Solid Films Continuum. Experimental Performance of Powder Layers.

Hot Deformation and Processing of Aluminum Alloys Hugh J. McQueen Concordia University

Stefano Spigarelli Univer. Polytech delle Marche

Michael E. Kassner University of Southern California

Enrico Evangelista University of Ancona Series: Manufacturing Engineering and Materials Processing

A comprehensive treatise on the hot working of aluminum and its alloys, Hot Deformation and Processing of Aluminum Alloys details the possible microstructural developments that can occur with hot deformation of various alloys, as well as the kind of mechanical properties that can be anticipated. The authors take great care to explain and differentiate hot working in the context of other elevated temperature phenomena, such as creep, superplasticity, cold working, and annealing. They also pay particular attention to the fundamental mechanisms of aluminum plasticity at hot working temperatures. Using extensive analysis derived from polarized light optical microscopy (POM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), x-ray diffraction (XRD) scanning electron-microscopy with electron backscatter imaging (SEM-EBSD), and orientation imaging microscopy (OIM), the authors examine those microstructures that evolve in torsion, compression, extrusion, and rolling. Further microstructural analysis leads to detailed explanations of dynamic recovery (DRV), static recovery (SRV), discontinuous dynamic recrystallization (dDRX), discontinuous static recrystallization (dSRX), grain defining dynamic recovery (gDRV) (formerly geometric dynamic recrystallization, or gDRX), and continuous dynamic recrystallization involving both a single phase (cDRX/1-phase) and multiple phases (cDRX/2phase). A companion to other works that focus on modeling, manufacturing involving plastic and superplastic deformation, and control of texture and phase transformations, this book provides thorough explanations of microstructural development to lay the foundation for further study of the mechanisms of thermomechanical processes and their application.


• Presents tabular comparisons, chapter-end summaries, copious referencing, a table of acronyms, and full indexing • Provides classic explanations of micro-structural evolution and mechanical behavior in hot working of aluminum alloys (every wrought series, particulate composites, etc.) • Summarizes research results relating to torsion, compression, extrusion, and rolling with POM, TEM, SEM-EBSI, and OIM microstructures • Includes background information on dislocation behavior theory in cubic crystals and in face- and body-centered cubic and hexagonal metals at elevated temperature Selected Contents: Aluminum and Its Alloys.

Materials Science - Fundamentals Physical Metallurgy of Direct Chill Casting of Aluminum Alloys Dmitry G. Eskin Brunel University, Uxbridge, United Kingdom Series: Advances in Metallic Alloys

Pulling together information previously scattered throughout numerous research articles into one detailed resource, Physical Metallurgy of Direct Chill Casting of Aluminum Alloys connects the fundamentals of structure formation during solidification with the practically observed structure and defect patterns in billets and ingots. The author examines the formation of a structure, properties, and defects in the as-cast material in tight correlation to the physical phenomena involved in the solidification and the process parameters. The book draws on the author’s advanced research to provide a unique application of physical metallurgy to direct chill (DC) casting technology. He examines structure and defect formation—including macrosegregation and hot tearing. Each technologycentered chapter provides historical background before reviewing current developments. The author supports his conclusions with computer simulation results that have been correlated with highly progressive experimental data. He presents a logical system of structure and defect formation based on the specific features of the DC casting process. He also demonstrates that the seemingly controversial results reported in literature are, in fact, caused by the different ratio of the same mechanisms. Compiling recent results and data, the book discusses the fundamentals of solidification together with metallurgical and technological aspects of DC casting. It gives insight and perspective into DC casting research. • Provides historical overviews of the development and materials science behind various aspects of DC casting • Defines the links among process parameters, structure features, and defect formation • Discusses different mechanisms for defect formation during DC casting, including macrosegregation and hot tearing • Addresses important features of structure and defect formation during DC casting • Uses extensive computer simulation results with unique experimental data • Presents a logical system of structure and defect formation based on the specific features of the DC casting process

General Resources Technical Writing A Practical Guide for Engineers and Scientists Phillip A. Laplante The Pennsylvania State University, Malvern, USA Series: What Every Engineer Should Know

Beena Rai Tata Research Development & Design Centre, Pune, India

An Introduction

Engineers and scientists of all types are often required to write reports, summaries, manuals, guides, and so forth. While these individuals certainly have had some sort of English or writing course, it is less likely that they have had any instruction in the special requirements of technical writing. Filling this void, Technical Writing: A Practical Guide for Engineers and Scientists enables readers to write, edit, and publish materials of a technical nature, including books, articles, reports, and electronic media. Written by a renowned engineer and widely published technical author, this guide complements the traditional writer’s reference manuals and other books on technical writing. It helps readers understand the practical considerations in writing technical content. Drawing on his own work, the author presents many first-hand examples of writing, editing, and publishing technical materials. These examples illustrate how a publication originated as well as various challenges and solutions.

Contracts for Engineers Intellectual Property, Standards, and Ethics Robert D. Hunter Robert D. Hunter Associates, Austin, Texas, USA

Engineers encounter different types of contracts at nearly every turn in their careers. Contracts for Engineers: Intellectual Property, Standards, and Ethics is a tool to enhance their ability to communicate contractual issues to lawyers— and then better understand the legal advice they receive. Building on its exploration of contracts, this book expands discussion to: • Patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, and other intellectual property issues • Development of standards and the bodies that govern them, as well as conformity assessment and accreditation • Ethics at both the micro and macro levels—a concept under major scrutiny after several major disasters, including the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the collapse of Boston’s Big Dig, and a coal-mining accident that resulted in many deaths With a brief introduction to common law contracts and their underlying principles, including basic examples, the book presents a sample of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) regarding the sale of goods. It evaluates elements of the different contracts that engineers commonly encounter, such as employee and associated consulting agreements and contracts involved in construction and government. Approaching intellectual property from a contract perspective, this reference focuses on the many different types of patents and their role in commerce. It touches on the application of trademarks and recent developments in the use of copyright as a form of contract and explains the process of obtaining patents, including the rationale for investing in them. Ethical standards receive special attention, which includes a review of several prominent professional codes of ethics and conduct for both organizations and individual engineers, particularly officers and higher-level managers.
