Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This textbook provides coverage of the science and technology of thin films and coatings. Developed for upper-level undergraduate and beginning graduate students, the book discusses physical and chemical vapour deposition processes; phenomena involving nucleation and growth, stress, diffusion and reaction; structural and chemical characterization techniques; and applications involving coatings, magnetic and optical recording materials, integrated optics and quantum devices. The book includes chapters on epitaxy and surface modification in addition to discussing emerging technologies such as diamond films and high T superconductors. Complete problem sets are provided at the end of each chapter to facilitate self-study.

Reviews provided by Syndetics


Ohring's very timely and excellent book fills a long-existing need in materials education at the graduate level. The 14 chapters review the fundamentals of materials science; vacuum science and technology; physical and chemical vapor deposition; film formation and structure; characterization, and mechanical, electrical, magnetic, and optical properties of thin films; interdiffusion and reaction phenomena; tribological, protective, and thermal coatings; surface modification; and emerging thin-film materials and applications. Each chapter is followed by an appropriate list of exercises and a comprehensive bibliography. There are two appendixes on physical constants and selected conversions, and a comprehensive subject index. The book is very well written, presented, and illustrated. It will prove useful to the scientist or engineer interested in coatings, to the college senior working on a project, and especially to graduate students in materials science and engineering and to faculty involved in teaching or research in the area of thin films. An excellent acquisition for an academic library. T. Z. Kattamis; University of Connecticut
