Bimetals have been attracting significant attention in materials science due to their unique properties and wide-ranging applications. Bimetals are two different metals that are bonded together to form a composite material with superior properties than either of the individual metals. The combination of the different metals results in a material with improved mechanical, thermal, electrical, and magnetic properties, making bimetals highly sought after in various industries.

The idea of bimetals dates back to ancient times, when people used them to make tools and weapons. However, the development of bimetallic technology and its applications have advanced significantly in recent years, thanks to the remarkable progress in materials science and engineering. This book provides an in-depth overview of the current state of the art of bimetallic materials. It covers various aspects of bimetal formation, properties, and applications, including the underlying principles, the different synthesis methods, the characterization techniques, and the wide range of applications of bimetals. The book is divided into eight chapters, each providing an in-depth look at different aspects of bimetals.

This book is an essential reference for materials scientists, researchers, engineers, and students interested in bimetals and their applications and it will provide an in-depth understanding of bimetals and their potential to revolutionize various R&D processes and industries.
