Applications of Piezoelectric Quartz Crystal Microbalances deals with the theory, design, artifacts, and varied applications of the piezoelectric quartz crystal microbalance. Applications of microbalances range from thin film deposition process control to simultaneous measurement of mass and temperature, analytical chemistry, and space system contamination studies. Stress effects in microbalances are also considered. Comprised of 10 chapters, this volume begins with a historical background and overview of applications of piezoelectric quartz crystal microbalances, followed by an analysis of the theory and practice of microbalances. The role of acoustic impedance in a quartz crystal microbalance and design considerations for a microbalance are given emphasis. Subsequent chapters focus on applications of microbalances in thin film deposition process control; simultaneous measurement of mass and temperature; surface science and analytical chemistry; plasma-assisted etching and space system contamination studies; and aerosol mass measurement. This monograph will be of interest to students and practitioners of physics, chemistry, and materials science.

Die Massebestimmung hat eine zentrale Bedeutung in Wissenschaft, Technik und Wirtschaft. Von der Mikrowaage bis zu Wägesystemen für Güterzugwaggons, vom Massenspektrometer bis zur Bestimmung der Massen von Himmelskörpern reichen die Geräte und Verfahren. Dieses Buch, von Wissenschaftlern der Physikalisch-Technischen Bundesanstalt herausgegeben, gibt einen Überblick über das gesamte Gebiet. Es spannt den Bogen von den physikalischen Grundlagen - einschließlich aktueller Fragenstellungen, z.B. zu der Neudefinition des Kilogramm - über das SI-System, praktisch allen Wägeverfahren bis hin zu wissenschaftlichen Experimenten oder Beobachtungen. Laien und Fachleute werden gleichermassen angesprochen. Ausführliche Ausflüge in die Geschichte und eine wohl konkurrenzlos umfassende Literatursammlung runden dieses Standardwerk ab. Das Buch wendet sich an alle, die in Grundlagenforschung, technischer Anwendung oder Normungsfragen mit dem Thema befaßt sind, an Lehrer und nicht zuletzt an Wissenschaftshistoriker.

This second edition of the highly successful dictionary offers more than 300 new or revised terms. A distinguished panel of electrochemists provides up-to-date, broad and authoritative coverage of 3000 terms most used in electrochemistry and energy research as well as related fields, including relevant areas of physics and engineering. Each entry supplies a clear and precise explanation of the term and provides references to the most useful reviews, books and original papers to enable readers to pursue a deeper understanding if so desired. Almost 600 figures and illustrations elaborate the textual definitions. The “Electrochemical Dictionary” also contains biographical entries of people who have substantially contributed to electrochemistry. From reviews of the first edition: ‘the creators of the Electrochemical Dictionary have done a laudable job to ensure that each definition included here has been defined in precise terms in a clear and readily accessible style’ (The Electric Review) ‘It is a must for any scientific library, and a personal purchase can be strongly suggested to anybody interested in electrochemistry’ (Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry) ‘The text is readable, intelligible and very well written’ (Reference Reviews)

Two types of films were examined with respect to fundamental properties that are essential for biosensor applications. The first was formed by electrostatic binding of charged electroactive transition metal complexes into hydrophilic ion exchange polymers. The second comprised thin phospholipid layers, prepared from liposomes composed of mixtures of naturally occurring amphiphiles. Several lipophilic biomolecules are located in & designed to function within the lipid bilayer structure of the membranes that enclose cells & cell organelles. Illustrated.
