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.

Key Features

  • 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


Surface scientists and research students in the area of nano- coatings and their applications. Chemists, chemical engineers and material scientists as well as coating engineers in industry

Mircea Chipara

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.
