4. “Physical Metallurgy Principles” by R Abbaschian and R E Reed Hill

Book Review: This book makes the readers well known with the theory of x-ray diffraction, the various experimental methods involved and the applications of it. The book contains a set of principles and methods that deal with X-ray diffraction rather than metallurgy. The book uses Bragg law to describe various concepts and is divided into three parts and they are basics, experimental methods and applications. This book is suitable for beginners.

5. “Introduction to Materials Science for Engineers” by J F Shackelford

“Introduction to Materials Science for Engineers” Book Review: The book covers the concepts of engineering materials. Students from various departments of engineering can refer to this text. The book describes the physical properties of engineering materials. A wide variety of applications of engineering materials are also discussed.

6. “Material Science of Thin Films – Deposition and Structure” by Ohring

“Material Science of Thin Films – Deposition and Structure” Book Review: The book deals with the concepts of engineering materials from a thin film and coating standpoint. It targets students as well as researchers in the field. Deposition techniques, atomic layer deposition and high impulse magnetron sputtering are emphasised in the book. Recent technological developments in the field are also provided. Other topics included are: filtered cathodic arcs, nanorod growth by the vapor-liquid-solid process, carbon nanotubes and new quantitative kinetic nucleation models along with many other important aspects.

7. “Electronic Structure of Materials” by Prasad

“Electronic Structure of Materials” Book Review: The book provides the readers with electronic structure methods and its applications. It is written for students of advanced undergraduate or graduate level courses. The book begins with familiarising the readers with the fundamentals of the subject with the help of several examples. Eventually, the book deals with a range of applications of the explained concepts such as crystalline solids, disordered substitutional alloys, amorphous solids, nanoclusters etc. Other topics covered are electronic charge, mass, and atomic number. Readers can also find worked out problems at the end of every chapter complementing the elucidated concepts.

8. “Modulated Structure Materials” by Tsakalakos
9. “Structure and Properties of Aperiodic Materials” by Yoshio Waseda

“Structure and Properties of Aperiodic Materials” Book Review: The book discusses aperiodic materials and their properties mainly. It can be accessed by students and researchers alike. Both theoretical and applicational aspects of the subject are dealt with. The book describes the magnetic and electronic properties of aperiodic materials such as structural inhomogeneity. Calculation methodologies are also explained. Readers can find the concepts simplified with the help of several tables and illustrations.
