Kinetic Processes: Crystal Growth, Diffusion, and Phase Transitions in Materials, 2nd EditionISBN: 9783527327362
453 pages
August 2010

In this completely revised edition, all the chapters have been
updated to reflect the current state of crystal growth kinetics. At
the same time, fifteen percent additional content now allows
coverage of computerassisted modeling of secondorder phase
changes, microstructure development, novel data and images of
coarsening mechanisms, with the most significant single addition
being breakthrough results on spinodal decomposition  published
here for the first time in book form.
The refined didactical approach with a streamlined presentation now allows readers to grasp the kinetic concepts even more easily, coherently introducing the field of kinetic processes, especially those involved in crystal growth, and explaining such phenomena as diffusion, nucleation, segregation and phase transitions at a level accessible to graduate students. In addition to the basic kinetic concepts, the textbook presents modern applications where these processes play a major role, including ion implantation, plasma deposition and rapid thermal processing.

Kenneth A. Jackson is Professor Emeritus in the Department of
Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Arizona in
Tucson, USA. He received his PhD degree from Harvard University and
was an assistant Professor there before he joined AT&T Bell
Laboratories. At Bell Labs he was head of Materials Physics
Research for many years. His major scientific interests are the
kinetic processes of crystal growth, and his scientific
contributions include constitutional supercooling, the surface
roughening transition, defect formation in crystals, and studies of
alloy crystallization. He pioneered in computer simulation studies
of the atomic scale processes during crystal growth. Kenneth A.
Jackson has served as President for both the American Association
for Crystal Growth and the Materials Research Society. He has
received numerous awards for his scientific contributions from both
the American and the International Crystal Growth societies. He is
also a member of the National Academy of Engineering.
