A Practical Manual on Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion by John G. Stoecker

By John G. Stoecker

This really useful guide is the much-awaited follow-up to "A functional handbook on Microbiologically prompted Corrosion", first published by way of NACE foreign in 1993. an ideal better half to the 1st version, quantity 2 makes use of a similar layout whereas delivering new fabric and present develop-ments with a world effect. many of the subject matters coated comprise: the function microorganisms play in corrosion reactions, the incidence of MIC in various industries, recommendation on tips on how to determine even if corrosion difficulties are relating to MIC, and MIC therapy and prevention tips. the subjects indexed above are illustrated via a variety of charts, graphs, and images. every one bankruptcy is authored through a well-known professional within the box of MIC.

High-Efficiency Multijunction Solar Cells

The potency of a sun mobile may be elevated by way of stacking mul tiple sun cells with arange of bandgap energies, leading to a multijunction sunlight phone with a greatest the oreticalefficiency restrict of 86. 8%. III-V compound semiconductors are stable candidatesfor fabricating such multijunction sunlight cells for 2 purposes: they are often grown withexcellent ma te rial caliber; and their bandgaps span a large spectral variety, more often than not withdirect bandgaps, implying a excessive absorption coefficient.

Smart Light-Responsive Materials: Azobenzene-Containing Polymers and Liquid Crystals

This publication experiences the state of the art major examine within the box of clever light-responsive fabrics in response to azobenzene polymers and liquid crystals. Emphasis is put on the invention of latest phenomena from the prior five years, their underlying mechanisms, new functionalities, and houses accomplished via rational layout.

Mono-Cycle Photonics and Optical Scanning Tunneling Microscopy: Route to Femtosecond Ångstrom Technology (Springer Series in Optical Sciences) (v. 99)

Offers with either the ultrashort laser-pulse expertise within the few- to mono-cycle area and the laser-surface-controlled scanning-tunneling microscopy (STM) extending into the spatiotemporal severe know-how. the previous covers the idea of nonlinear pulse propagation past the slowly-varing-envelope approximation, the new release and energetic chirp reimbursement of ultrabroadband optical pulses, the amplitude and part characterization of few- to mono-cycle pulses, and the suggestions box keep watch over for the mono-cycle-like pulse new release.

Electromagnetic Material Interrogation Using Conductive Interfaces and Acoustic Wavefronts (Frontiers in Applied Mathematics)

Electromagnetic thought deals fascination and problem from either a actual and a mathematical point of view. This monograph includes the latest effects at the use of electromagnetic probes to interrogate dielectric fabric buildings for fabric houses and geometry. The authors commence with easy electromagnetics, similar to Maxwell's equations, and current modeling, concept, and computational effects.

The reddish-orange colored patina present on the marble was produced mainly by the presence of cysts of Haernatoccus pluvialis. Their formation is accompanied by a change in color from green to red-orange owing to the production of large quantities of cytoplasmatic carotenoids, responsible for the color alteration. Endolithic growth also could be considered as a survival strategy. Saiz-Jimenez et al. 23 This community was dominated by unicellular cyanobacteria. Giaccone et al. found the endolithic active borer Hyella fontana in marble statues in Rome and attributed a role in the decay of the stone to this c y a n o b a ~ t e r i u m .
