Series: Advances in Materials Science Research
BISAC: TEC021000

This book provides readers with the latest developments in materials science research. Chapter One discusses advantages for optical applications with transparent polycrystalline ceramic materials. Chapter Two reviews K0.5Na0.5NbO3-based lead-free transparent ceramics. Chapter Three describes the operation principles and requirements for photodetector (PD) devices, followed by the latest developments in materials and device architectures. Chapter Four studies applications of infrared thermography to the analysis of steel welded junctions. Chapter Five discusses Suspension Plasma Spraying (SPS) as a method that uses liquid feedstock. Chapter Six reviews the recent studies on the structural, electronic, optical and mechanical properties of silicene-derivative structures. In Chapter Seven, the correlations between experimental and theoretical results have been established in order to gain complete insight into structural features which enable modeling and synthesis of novel APD molecules with potential usage in various industries. Chapter Eight considers the analytical capabilities of two methods for studying the composition of gold-bearing samples. (Imprint: Nova)
