Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"This is the first book in world literature devoted to applications of the isotopic effects in solids. … 625 references and a detailed index are given at the very end. … The main aim of this book to familiarize readers with present and some future applications in isotopic science and engineering was successful. … This carefully written and edited book can be recommended both as a tutorial and as reference to physicists, chemists, electronic engineers, and material scientists alike." (Reinhold Haberlandt, Isotopes in Environmental and Health Studies, Vol. 41 (2), 2005)
