Handbook of Modern Coating Technologies: Advanced Characterization Methods focuses on new aspects of surface engineering surrounding nanocoatings and biocoatings, from their fabrication methods to properties and usages. This five part volume explores the detection of surface features that destroy pieces and how most technological advancements are constrained with surface requirements. Subjects cover the production of new, advanced coatings and the characteristics of abrasion, corrosion, fatigue and disruption. Both electronic and optical electronic apparatuses are great examples to be studied.
- Describes new methods, including plasma-based treatments
- Show properties and mechanisms that can be compared for the industrialization of new methods for specific components with desired properties
- Classifies methods, providing a better understanding of treatments and showing which treatments are possible replacements for conventional methods
- Includes new applications such as chromate plating
- Illustrates new methods and their ability to optimize properties

Mircea Chipara is Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Geology. The research of Dr. Chipara is focused on materials obtained by dispersing nanometer - sized particles with different physical properties (mechanical, optical, thermal, electrical, or magnetic) within polymeric matrices (nanocomposites). Such materials may exhibit multifunctional properties and may present smart capabilities. Due to their low weight and outstanding physical properties, nanocomposites have potential applications as space materials. The research of Dr. Chipara also includes a thorough investigation of the fundamental mechanisms and processes responsible for the degradation of polymers and polymer – based nanocomposites.

Professor Jeff Th.M. DeHosson (born 1950) holds a PhD in Physics of the Groningen University (with highest distinction, thesis supervisor Andre Wegener Sleeswijk) and after his postdoctoral years in USA (Northwestern Un. and UCBerkeley) was appointed in 1977 by the Crown to full Professor Applied Physics. His research focuses on the structure-property relationship in structural and functional nanostructured materials, in which ultra-high resolution transmission electron microscopy and surface modification techniques are key issues. He is elected member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences (division physics), Royal Holland Society for Sciences, editor of 3 international journals, including Scripta Materialia, member of editorial board of 12 journals and elected Fellow of various foreign scientific societies, including TMS and ASM-International. He holds Honorary professorships of Tsinghua Un -Beijing, UST-Beijing and Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Un PortElisabeth –SA. He received a number of international awards, including the Eminent Scientist Medal Wessex-Great Brittain/Un. of Southampton, the prestigious European Materials God Medal in 2005 and NanoSmat prize 2009. He published more than 800 articles, including 77 papers in Acta Materialia and supervised up to 2011 in total 69 PhD theses and 316 master students.
