encyclopedia of spectroscopy and spectrometry

Encyclopedia of Spectroscopy and Spectrometry, Third Edition provides authoritative and comprehensive coverage on all aspects of spectroscopy and closely related subjects that use the same fundamental principles, including mass spectrometry and imaging techniques and applications. It includes the history, theoretical background, details of instrumentation and technology, and current applications of the key areas of spectroscopy.

This new edition includes over 80 new articles across the field, complementing those from the previous edition, and brought up-to-date to reflect the latest trends in the field. Coverage in the third edition includes atomic spectroscopy, electronic spectroscopy, fundamentals in spectroscopy, high-energy spectroscopy, magnetic resonance, mass spectrometry, spatially-resolved spectroscopic analysis, and vibrational, rotational, and raman spectroscopies.

This new edition is aimed at professional scientists seeking to familiarize themselves with particular topics quickly and easily.

comprehensive materials finishing

Comprehensive Materials Finishing integrates a wide body of knowledge and understanding on the topic into a single, comprehensive work. Containing a mixture of review articles, case studies, and research findings resulting from R and D activities in industrial and academic domains, this reference work focuses on how certain finish manufacturing processes are advantageous for a broad range of technologies. Discussions include their applicability, energy, technological costs, and practicability of implementation.

A wide range of materials, including ferrous, non-ferrous, and polymeric materials are covered, along with three distinct types of finishing processes, surface treatment by which the properties of the material are modified without generally changing the physical dimensions of the surface, finish machining processes by which a small layer of material is removed from the surface by various machining processes to render improved surface characteristics, and surface coating processes by which surface properties are improved by adding fine layer(s) of materials with superior surface characteristics.

Each of these primary finishing processes is presented in its own volume for ease of use, making this book an essential reference source for researchers and professionals at all career stages in academia and industry.
