Description: Following in the tradition of two prior installments in the series, this volume focuses on the structure-property relationship of interfaces in materials. Rather than concentrating on a specific class of materials, or even on a specific group of properties, the volume brings together a diverse group of researchers with varied interests to seek a common foundation on which to build future efforts in interfacial engineering. The papers in the volume are arranged topically, and illustrate the breadth of the symposium. Both experimental and simulation contributions address the details of how interface character and the interfacial network topology in polycrystals influence mechanical properties like yield, ductility, creep and cracking resistance, as well as electronic or magnetic properties like superconductivity or ferroelectricity. A number of contributions deal specifically with the need for more detailed understanding of the structure of individual interfaces, the statistical distribution of their character, and their connectivity in a polycrystalline structure. Topics include: the role of interfaces and deformation and fracture; chemical and environmental effects; surfaces, thin films and functional materials; structure and migration of interfaces; and interface structure, networks and correlations.Expand description
