Diffuse Scattering—the use of off-specular X-Rays and neutrons from surfaces and interfaces—has grown rapidly as a tool for characterizing the surface properties of materials and related fundamental structural properties. It has proven to be especially useful in the understanding of local properties within materials. This new book reflects the efforts of physicists and materials scientists around the world who have helped to refine the techniques and applications of diffuse scattering.

Krishna Reddy and Jeffrey Adams

Traditional site remediation approaches typically focus on the reduction of containment concentrations to meet cleanup goals or risk-based corrective levels with a primary emphasis on remediation program cost and time frame. Such an approach, however, may result in ancillary impacts to the environment that, when considered in totality with the remediation activity, result in a net negative impact to the environment.

Alfredo Sanz-Medel and Rosario Pereiro

This book offers a concise, but highly useful introduction to the basic concepts, techniques, and new applications of Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS). This well-established materials analysis technology dates back to the 19th century, yet it remains today one of the most popular and cost-effective analysis tools used by chemists, physicists and materials scientists worldwide.

The second edition provides you with the latest information on all new AAS techniques and instruments. Highlights encompass:

Yoshiki Oshida

The ultimate success for placed implants in both dental and medical practice relies on the early stage of osteo-integration (fusing and integrating of placed non-vital implant surface to receiving vital hard tissue - bone structure). This new book explains the three basic requirements for implant success from a surface engineering perspective:

One of the ways of making drug delivery more efficient is the use of nanosystems for targeted delivery and timed release. This new monograph in the ASME-Momentum Press series on Biomedical & Nanomedical Technologies will explore the latest research on nanoparticulate delivery systems for the immune modulating agent, GMDP (N-acetylglucosaminyl-N-acetylmuramyl-Lisoglutamine), an important component in cell wall structure and receptors. Silica nanoparticles in particular have shown great promise in enhanced delivery of drugs targeted at this cellular wall component.

Tubular combustors are cylindrical tubes where flame ignition and propagation occur in a spatially confined, highly controlled environment, in a nearly flat, elongated geometry. This allows for some unique advantages where extremely even heat dispersion is required over a large surface while still maintaining fuel efficiency. Tubular combustors also allow for easy flexibility in type of fuel source, allowing for quick changeover to meet various needs and changing fuel pricing.
