In the past few decades, friction material engineering has become more sophisticated with many tests and techniques to investigate the properties of the materials and their counterparts before, during and after friction occurred. There has not been too much information available on the different raw materials used for friction materials. This book is more focused towards the raw materials that formulate the different friction materials. It explains about their main friction effects and material structure. Handbook of Friction Materials and Their Applications begins by explaining about different friction materials and how they can be used for brakes. It then goes onto explain the tribology of friction materials. Further out it discusses how different friction materials are formulated and produced. Noise and vibration are explained in a further chapter. The later part talks about how different raw materials can be used for friction materials, such as metals, carbon, organic and inorganic materials. Explains how different friction materials can be used for brakes Discusses the noise and vibration effects in friction materials Covers the raw materials that are used in friction materials

Recent research has led to a deeper understanding of the nature and consequences of interactions between materials on an atomic scale. The results have resonated throughout the field of tribology. For example, new applications require detailed understanding of the tribological process on macro- and microscales and new knowledge guides the rational design of material for these applications. A two volume set, the Modern Tribology Handbook reports on the current state-of-the-field as it reflects these developments, including all industrial applications. In the Modern Tribology Handbook you will get: A thorough review of the basic concepts of contact, friction, wear, and lubrication Comprehensive coverage of experimental studies The fascinating subject of molecular dynamics simulations An exploration of both conventional and new tribological materials Knowledge of the advantages and limitations of ceramics, diamond-like carbon and related films, and a wide range of coating composites A section devoted to industrial components and systems Conventional tribology has become well established in the past fifty years but few handbooks that exist are dated. The rapid evolution of micro- and nanotribology will cause it to take center stage for the next decade, but much of the new information has not made it into the hands that need to use it. Extensively illustrated and well-researched, the Modern Tribology Handbook gives you comprehensive information on conventional topics and, more importantly, emphasizes all industrial applications, including the fundamentals of the emerging field of micro-and nanotribology.

The Handbook of Ellipsometry is a critical foundation text on an increasingly critical subject. Ellipsometry, a measurement technique based on phase and amplitude changes in polarized light, is becoming popular in a widening array of applications because of increasing miniaturization of integrated circuits and breakthroughs in knowledge of biological macromolecules deriving from DNA and protein surface research. Ellipsometry does not contact or damage samples, and is an ideal measurement technique for determining optical and physical properties of materials at the nano scale. With the acceleration of new instruments and applications now occurring, this book provides an essential foundation for the current science and technology of ellipsometry for scientists and engineers in industry and academia at the forefront of nanotechnology developments in instrumentation, integrated circuits, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals. Divided into four parts, this comprehensive handbook covers the theory of ellipsometry, instrumentation, applications, and emerging areas. Experts in the field contributed to its twelve chapters, covering various aspects of ellipsometry.
