The interface structure of joined materials is a key factor in the development of high-tech components. The book reviews recent experimental and theoretical research in the area of modelling new types of joints and predicting the expected properties. Fields covered include lattice theory, semiconductor electronics, solid-state lithium-ion conductor, solid-state devices, filamentary growth of graphite, curved basal sheets of graphite, thermodynamic factors and lattice-matching criteria, minimisation of interface stresses due to misfit, epitaxial deposition, composite design, coincidence site lattice theory, ionic conductivity improvement by interfacial lattice strain, epitaxial thin-film systems, methods and software for identifying compatible material combinations. The book references 302 original resources and includes their direct web link for in-depth reading.

About the author

Dr Fisher has wide knowledge and experience of the fields of engineering, metallurgy and solid-state physics, beginning with work at Rolls-Royce Aero Engines on turbine-blade research, related to the Concord supersonic passenger-aircraft project, which led to a BSc degree (1971) from the University of Wales. This was followed by theoretical and experimental work on the directional solidification of eutectic alloys having the ultimate aim of developing composite turbine blades. This work led to a doctoral degree (1978) from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (Lausanne). He then acted for many years as an editor of various academic journals, in particular Defect and Diffusion Forum. In recent years he has specialised in writing monographs which introduce readers to the most rapidly developing ideas in the fields of engineering, metallurgy and solid-state physics. His latest paper will appear shortly in International Materials Reviews, and he is co-author of the widely-cited student textbook, Fundamentals of Solidification.
