Because of the rapid increase in commercially available Fourier transform infrared spectrometers and computers over the past ten years, it has now become feasible to use IR spectrometry to characterize very thin films at extended interfaces. At the same time, interest in thin films has grown tremendously because of applications in microelectronics, sensors, catalysis, and nanotechnology. The Handbook of Infrared Spectroscopy of Ultrathin Films provides a practical guide to experimental methods, up-to-date theory, and considerable reference data, critical for scientists who want to measure and interpret IR spectra of ultrathin films. This authoritative volume also: Offers information needed to effectively apply IR spectroscopy to the analysis and evaluation of thin and ultrathin films on flat and rough surfaces and on powders at solid-gaseous, solid-liquid, liquid-gaseous, liquid-liquid, and solid-solid interfaces. <ul><li>Provides full discussion of theory underlying techniques <li>Describes experimental methods in detail, including optimum conditions for recording spectra and the interpretation of spectra <li>Gives detailed information on equipment, accessories, and techniques <li>Provides IR spectroscopic data tables as appendixes, including the first compilation of published data on longitudinal frequencies of different substances <li>Covers new approaches, such as Surface Enhanced IR spectroscopy (SEIR), time-resolved FTIR spectroscopy, high-resolution microspectroscopy and using synchotron radiation</ul>
The four companion volumes on Dynamic Aspects of Detonations and Explosion Phenomena and Dynamics of Gaseous and Heterogeneous Combustion and Reactive Systems present 111 of the 230 papers given at the Thirteenth International Colloquium on the Dynamics of Explosions and Reactive Systems held in Nagoya, Japan. These books embrace the topics of explosions, detonations, shock phenomena, and reactive flow, as well as the gasdynamic aspects of nonsteady flow in combustion systems, the fluid mechanics aspects of combustion, and diagnostic techniques. Two of the volumes, Dynamics of Gaseous Combustion (Vol. 151) and Dynamics of Heterogeneous Combustion and Reacting Systems (Vol. 152), focus on the processes of coupling the exothermic energy release with the fluid mechanics occurring in various combination processes. The other two volumes, Dynamic Aspects of Detonations (Vol. 153) and Dynamic Aspects of Explosion Phenomena (Vol. 154), address the rate processes of energy deposition in a compressible medium and the concurrent nonsteady flow as it typically occurs in explosion phenomena.
