Overview

Incorporates in a single resource all aspects of surface engineering, including tribological, optical, electrical and electro-optic coatings as well as functionally engineered structures and materials.

Introduction to Surface Engineering and Functionally Engineered Materials provides a clear and understandable text for users and developers of advanced engineered materials, particularly in the area of thin films. It addresses the fundamentals of modifying the optical, electrical, photo-electric, tribological, and corrosion resistance of solid surfaces, and how to add functionality to solids by engineering their surface, electronic, magnetic and optical structure and properties. Thin film applications are emphasized. Through the inclusion of multiple clear examples of the technologies, how to use them, and the synthesis processes involved, the reader will gain a deep understanding of the purpose, goals, and methodology of surface engineering and engineered materials.

This comprehensive and authoritative introduction includes chapters on:

  • Properties of solid surfaces
  • Thin film deposition processes
  • Thin film structure and defects
  • Thin film tribological materials
  • Optical thin films and composites
  • Fabrication process for electrical and electro-optical thin films
  • Functionally engineered materials
  • Multifunctional surface engineering applications
  • Bio-inspired materials and surfaces

The book will used by engineers, materials scientists, and product developers in industry who work, for instance, with thin films, surfaces, coatings, optics, corrosion, nanotechnology, and plasma. Students, faculty, and the research community (government, industrial, and university labs) will find this book of great importance as well.

Meet the Author

Peter Martin worked at Battelle, Pacific Northwest Laboratory (BNW) for over 29 years where he currently holds an Emeritus Laboratory Fellow appointment, and specializes in developing thin film coatings for energy, biomedical, space and defense applications. He pioneered the use of reactive magnetron sputtering technology to fabricate novel and advanced optical coating materials and specializes in large area optical and thin film coating development. He has also led development of high performance large area ground-based and space-based laser mirrors for DOD applications.
Dr. Martin has written over 400 technical publications. He has won three R&D 100 Awards for his work in microfabrication and barrier coatings for flat panel displays, has two FLC awards, was awarded Battelle Technology of the Year (2003) for his work with the photolytic artificial lung, and voted Distinguished Inventor and PNNL 2005 Inventor of the Year. He has 26 US patents and numerous foreign and pending patents. He also teaches short courses on smart materials and energy materials and applications.
