Dispersion Forces II

Tribology of Nanocomposites

Effective Electron Mass in LowDimensional Semiconductors

Many-Body Effects, Excited Atoms, Finite Temperature and Quantum Friction

A storehouse of up-to-date research data on the tribology of nanocomposite materials, this reference for advanced students has broad coverage of the field, including chapters on Al2O2- and MoS2-based composites, and multi-scale, phasereinforced varieties.

This book examines the effective electron mass in nanodevices, explaining changes in band structure of optoelectronic semiconductors, and offering insight into electronic behavior in doped semiconductors and nanostructures.

This book offers a unified theory of dispersion forces on atoms and bodies that spans scenarios, considers such material properties as absorption and is flexible enough to be broadly applied. Vol 2 covers quantum electrodynamics, dispersion forces and more.
