Surface & Coatings Technology, Volumes 59–60 presents the proceedings of the Third International Conference on Plasma Surface Engineering, held in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, on October 26–29, 1992. This book discusses the widespread applications of plasma and particle beam assisted methods in surface and thin film technology. Volume 59 is organized into 11 parts encompassing 69 chapters while Volume 60 is comprised of eight parts encompassing 49 chapters. This compilation of papers begins with an overview of the kinetic modelling of low pressure high frequency discharges. This text then examines the effect of various deposition parameters on the growth of chamber wall deposits. Other chapters consider the physiochemical behavior of ceramic materials for space applications. This book discusses as well the economic aspects of the application of plasma surface technologies. The reader is also introduced to the environmental aspects of physical vapor deposition coating technology. This book is a valuable resource for plasma surface engineers, technologists, and researchers.
