Surface Analysis of Glasses and Glass Ceramics, and Coatings
This volume describes how current methods of surface and thin film analysis, microscopy, and electron microscopy in combination with optical measurements and development, and in the production of glasses, glass ceramics, and thin film coatings. All these methods can contribute to the main aims of development and production, i.e., to develop useful properties of the surface of glass and glass ceramics, either coated or not, and to reproduce these properties within the wanted accuracy under the most economic conditions of production. The book is conceived as a monograph; the individual chapters on the corresponding subjects, however, are written by experts who cooperate with or are at Schott.
Illustrating examples and numerous references are provided throughout the book.
