Raman Spectroscopy makes use of the interaction between a light source--usually in the form of laser--and the molecular vibrations or rotations or other types of molecular movement set off in a specimen from that light so as to create information about the chemical and physical nature of that specimen. It is particularly useful in determining the nature of chemical bonds and the symmetry of molecules. This is the first volume of a two volume set on the background and principles of Raman Spectroscopy and its special applications.

Muralisrinivasan Subramanian

The Basics of Polymers is written exclusively about chemical methods of polymer testing aimed at producing a high degree of manufacturing and quality control of polymer products. Polymer testing has assumed importance for industries dependent on polymers and additives as key product components. The text is intended to serve as a handbook for students, engineers, and people involved in polymer synthesis and laboratory work.

Bulk metallic glasses and their composites have attracted a lot of attention lately in the scientific community owing to their excellent mechanical properties (combination of hardness, strength, and high elastic strain limit). However, they still lack toughness and tensile ductility and exhibit catastrophic failure upon tension. This can be overcome by various means, of which in situ introduction of ductile crystalline precipitates/phases during solidification proved to be the best.

Mary Kate Donais and David George

This book serves as a practical guide for the application of XRF spectrometry to the study and understanding of archaeology. Early chapters serve as both an introduction to XRF theory and instrumentation as well as an introduction to field applications and practical aspects of archaeology and conservation. These early chapter thus provide those new to XRF and/or new to field archaeology a solid foundation on which to base further study.

The ability to tailor the properties of silicon, by controlling its surface morphology in the form of black silicon, is anticipated to revolutionize silicon photonics. Black Silicon (BSi), one of the approaches to counter the inherent disadvantages of Si, is a surface modification of crystalline Si (c-Si).

Basics of Polymers: Materials and Synthesis is a major investigative tool in the design and synthesis of polymers in the modern academic and industrial fields. Materials and synthesis encompass a wide range of operations such as selection of monomer(s) and polymerization techniques for the synthesis of materials under various operating conditions. The design and synthesis of each process should therefore be based on specific features. This book highlights the diversity of approaches used in understanding polymer synthesis.

Transmission electron microscope (TEM) is a very powerful tool for characterizing various types of materials. Using a light microscope, the imaging resolution is at several hundred nanometers, and for a scanning electron microscope at several nanometers. The imaging resolution of the TEM, however, can routinely reach several angstroms on a modem instrument. In addition, the TEM can also provide material structural information, since the electrons penetrate through the thin specimens, and chemical compositional information due to the strong electron specimen atom interactions.

This book discusses the use of AES and SAM for the characterization of a wide range of technological materials. These include metals and alloys, semiconductors, nanostructures, and insulators. Its value as a tool for high-resolution elemental imaging and compositional depth profiling is illustrated. The application of the technique for obtaining compositional information from the surfaces, interfaces, and thin film structures of technological and engineering materials is demonstrated.
