  • About this book

  • Complete, handbook type survey
  • Gives detailed insight in diffusion as the process of particle transport due to stochastic movement

This comprehensive, handbook-style survey of diffusion in condensed matter gives detailed insight into diffusion as the process of particle transport due to stochastic movement - which is understood and presented as a phenomenon of crucial relevance for a large variety of processes and materials. In this book all aspects of theoretical fundamentals, experimental techniques, highlights of current developments and results for solids, liquids and interfaces are presented. Students and scientists in physics, chemistry, materials sciencs and biology will benefit from this detailed compilation, unique for it's complete approach to diffusion, covering all topics, including cross-discipline approaches.

This third edition has new chapters in: case studies in metals and binary alloys, quasielastic neutron scattering, NMR studies interface-dominated and disordered solids, ionic transport in disordered materials and concept of mismatch and relaxation for self-diffusion and conduction.
