About this book

This book provides a comprehensive overview of a series of bismuth oxyhalide compounds of BiOX (X=F, Cl, Br, I), in terms of their microstructure, electronic/band structure, preparation techniques, optical properties and their applications. The book brings together, for the first time, a compilation of advances in this area, including results achieved at the authors’ lab (such as ultra-microscopy characterization by means of aberration-corrected STEM), offering a valuable guide for researchers and students alike.

About the authors

Dr. Gondal is a distinguished professor at Physics Department, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM), Dhahran, Saudi Arabia and visiting researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA since 2012. Dr. Gondal received his Ph.D from the University of Bonn, Germany. He has been a regular associate member of the International Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy (1988–1995) and member of the editorial boards of seven international journals. Dr. Gondal’s research interests are lasers, photonics, nanotechnology, materials science, sensors, solar cells, laser remote sensing, pollution monitoring, development of laser-based analytical techniques (LIDAR, PAS, LIBS,LEI), methane cracking using photolysis, laser-photo-catalysis for production of high value hydrocarbons and hydrogen for fuel cells, wastewater treatment and disinfection of bacteria. Dr. Gondal has published over 450 research papers in ISI journals and conferences of high repute. He has 15 patents so far published by the US patent office. He has contributed numerous book chapters. Dr. Gondal was awarded the Al-Marai Innovation Prize for the year 2011 for the application of nano-structured materials for environmental, three times Distinguished (Best) researcher award, and the Best Project Award by the KFUPM. 

Xiaofeng Chang is a Ph.D research scholar at the College of Material Science and Technology, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Nanjing, China. Chang has published over 50 research papers in ISI journals and conference proceedings. He has numerous patents and good citations. 

Mohamed Abdulkader Dastageer is currently a lecturer in Physics and scientist at the Laser Research Group at King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals (KFUPM), Saudi Arabia. He took his Master’s degree in Physics from King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals, Saudi Arabia. His areas of specialization are laser molecular spectroscopy, optical properties of functional materials and photocatalysis for the production of high value hydrocarbons, wastewater treatment and disinfection of bacteria. He is a research team member of the KFUPM-MIT, USA and KFUPM-NUS, Singapore collaborative research projects. He has several research publications in reputed international journals, book chapters and a few patents to his credit.
