  • Description

    Passivation of Metals and Semiconductors, and Properties of Thin Oxide Layers contains a selection of papers presented at PASSIVITY-9, the 9th International Symposium on the Passivation of Metals and Semiconductors and the Properties of Thin Oxide Layers, which was held in Paris, 27 June - 1 July, 2005. One hundred and twelve peer-reviewed manuscripts have been included.

    The book covers all the fundamental and applied aspects of passivity and provides a relevant and updated view of the advances and new trends in the field. It is structured in ten sections:
    • Growth, (Nano)structure and Composition of Passive Films
    • Passivity of Semiconductors
    • Electronic Properties of Passive Films
    • Passivity Issues in Biological Systems
    • Passivity in High-Temperature Water
    • Mechanical Properties of Passive Films, • Passivity Issues in Stress Corrosion Cracking and Tribocorrosion
    • Passivity Breakdown and Localized Corrosion
    • Modeling and Simulation
    • Surface Modifications and Inhibitors (for Improved Corrosion Resistance and/or Adhesion)
