Point Defects in Materials

 
9780120446100: Point Defects in Materials

This text provides an up-to-date coverage of the theoretical and experimental tools required for fundamental studies of point defects, with illustrative examples from a wide range of inorganic materials. On the experimental side a strong emphasis is placed on the powerful resonance and hyperfine methods which give detailed information on defect structures. Theoretical chapters cover statistical and quantum mechanical methods, particularly the computer simulations techniques which are now widely employed. The examples of applications of defect properties highlight the benefits of a controlled inclusion of defect properties for modern advanced technologies.
This work provides coverage of the theoretical tools required for defect study, putting strong emphasis on the wide range of experimental techniques needed for analysis. Particular attention has been given to the powerful resonance and hyperfine methods which often give more detailed data than classical methods.

Review:

"Altogether this is a remarkable book, reasonably low-priced and one which should be useful to solid state scientists in almost any field."
--CRYSTAL LATTICE DEFECTS AND AMORPHOUS MATERIALS
"It certainly will be a welcome aid for teaching an advanced undergraduate or graduate course on this pervasive subject area. The extensive review of experimental and theoretical techniques available for the investigation of point defects will be very valuable for beginning as well as established researchers in the field."
--MRS BULLETIN
"This treatise on point defects in materials provides a welcome addition to the bookshelves on materials science....
Point Defects in Materials undoubtedly fills a significant void among the recently published comprehensive treatments of important subfields of materials science and solid state physics. It certainly will be a welcome aid for teaching an advanced undergraduate or graduate course on this pervasive subject area. The extensive review of experimental and theoretical techniques available for the investigation of point defects will be very valuable for beginning as well as established researchers in the field. The authors must be commended highly for a valuable contribution for the materials science community to draw on."
--MRS BULLETIN
