Annual review of materials research; v.36, 2006.
Ed. by Venkatraman Gopalan et al.
Most of the 16 contributions in the 2006 edition of the annual series review recent research on porous and colloidal colloidal
of the nature of a colloid.
a bath containing gelatin, bran, starch or similar substances, to relieve skin irritation and pruritus. materials, ferroelectric Refers to a material that functions similarly to a ferromagnetic material in that it can be polarized into two states. Ferroelectric devices generally do not have any "ferrous" (iron) in them. See FeRAM and ferroelectric capacitor. domains, and hydrogen in metals and semiconductors. The colloidal science chapters explore the mechanical behavior of microcapsules, the preparation of amorphous mixed oxides by sol-gel techniques, the limits of single-crystal laser media, and the device physics of organic field effect transistors. Other topics include structural order in liquids induced by interfaces with crystals, positron positron: see antiparticle.
Subatomic particle having the same mass as an electron but with an electric charge of +1 (an electron has a charge of −1). It constitutes the antiparticle (see antimatter) of an electron. annihilation as a method to characterize porous materials, in situ In place. When something is "in situ," it is in its original location. synchrotron synchrotron: see particle accelerator.
Cyclic particle accelerator in which the particle is confined to its orbit by a magnetic field. The strength of the magnetic field increases as the particle's momentum increases. x-ray studies of ferroelectric thin films, and progress in microstructured optical
