About this book

Diffusion is a vital topic in solid-state physics and chemistry, physical metallurgy and materials science. Diffusion processes are ubiquitous in solids at elevated temperatures. A thorough understanding of diffusion in materials is crucial for materials development and engineering. This book first gives an account of the central aspects of diffusion in solids, for which the necessary background is a course in solid state physics. It then provides easy access to important information about diffuson in metals, alloys, semiconductors, ion-conducting materials, glasses and nanomaterials. Several diffusion-controlled phenomena, including ionic conduction, grain-boundary and dislocation pipe diffusion, are considered as well.

Graduate students in solid-state physics, physical metallurgy, materials science, physical and inorganic chemistry or geophysics will benefit from this book as will physicists, chemists, metallurgists, materials engineers in academic and industrial research laboratories.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Diffusion in solids is a mature discipline that is still an active field of research. … The book would be a useful addition for students and researchers in solid-state diffusion, materials science and engineering. It would be especially useful for those who wish to broaden their knowledge of diffusion into unfamiliar territory." (Colin Sholl, Australian Physics, Vol. 45 (1), 2008)

"A beautifully produced book with a nice clear print, clear black and white figures, a nice binding, a 12 page index, an extended bibliography … and many references at the end of each chapter. … this book will be of interest to materials research scientists and engineers. … In conclusion, this book is a great reference book in which a materials scientist or engineer will find both extensive basic information on diffusion in many types of materials and extensive references to the primary literature." (Fernande Grandjean and Gary J. Long, Physicalia, Vol. 30 (2), 2008)
