Crystalline and Non-Crystalline Solids: Preparation and Characterization

The present book is a compilation of research papers pertaining to a broad range of materials namely, crystalline solids, non-crystalline or semicrystalline solids, polymer composites, glasses, etc. encompassing dimensions varying through bulk crystals to thin films to nanocrystals, contributed by various scientists/researchers and covers a wide range of materials and their science, from kidney stone crystals to fly-ash, and would hopefully attract interest of an equally broad spectrum of materials scientists.
