Advanced materials XII : selected, peer reviewed papers from the 12th International Symposium on Advanced Materials, 26-30 September, 2011, Islamabad, Pakistan / edited by Shaheed Khan, Iftikhar us Salam and Karim Ahmed.
Advanced Materials XII is a compilation of selected peer-reviewed papers. The ever-increasing changes and complexities that characterize the present-day needs of industry have driven a growing demand for technical information on advanced materials. The ultimate aim of this publication is to present the latest information on recent progress, achievements and innovations in the field of advanced materials research and technology. The technical data presented here is likely to aid scientists and researchers working in the field of advanced materials Review from Book News Inc.: Papers from a September 2012 symposium held in Pakistan reveal the latest findings and innovations in advanced materials. Some specific topics addressed include surface modification and characterization of bulk amorphous materials, comparison of the viscosity of nanoconfined polystyrene nanoparticles, and tempering response to different morphologies of martensite in tensile deformation of dual-phase steel. Other subjects examined are influence of contact materials on phenomena in a short electrical arc, laser induced backside dry etching of BK-7 and quartz in a vacuum, a hierarchical approach for purifying pristine carbon nanotubes, and the effect of substrate temperature on the structural and electrical properties of MBE-grown ZnO. The book contains b&w photos and images.
