1. Alloy Systems and Compounds Containing Rare Earth Metals and Carbon
Volodymyr Babizhetskyy, Bogdan Kotur, Volodymyr Levytskyy and Herwig Michor
Handbook on the Physics and Chemistry of Rare Earths: Including Actinides, Volume 52, is a continuous series of books covering all aspects of rare earth science, including chemistry, life sciences, materials science and physics. The book's main emphasis is on rare earth elements [Sc, Y, and the lanthanides (La through Lu], but whenever relevant, information is also included on the closely related actinide elements. Individual chapters are comprehensive, broad, up-to-date, critical reviews written by highly experienced, invited experts.
The series, which was started in 1978 by Professor Karl A. Gschneidner Jr., combines, and integrates, both the fundamentals and applications of these elements with two published volumes each year.
- Presents up-to-date overviews and new developments in the field of rare earths, covering both their physics and chemistry
- Contains Individual chapters that are comprehensive and broad, with critical reviews
- Provides contributions from highly experienced, invited experts
Researchers working on rare earth materials, scientists and engineers in the rare earth industry, university libraries, research institutes
