Surface Engineering Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Introduction to Surface Engineering and Functionally Engineered Materials
by Peter M. Martin

Introduction to Surface Engineering and Functionally Engineered Materials provides a clear and understandable resource for users and developers of advanced engineered materials.

Materials are particularly stressed in the area of thin films, and the book covers fundamentals of modifying the optical, electrical, photo-electric, triboligical, and corrosion resistance of solid surfaces and adding functionality to solids by engineering their surface, structure, and electronic, magnetic and optical structure. Thin film applications are also emphasized.

Through the inclusion of multiple clear examples of the technologies, how to use them,and the synthesis processes involved, this book gives a deep understanding of the purpose, goals, and methodology of surface engineering and engineered materials.
