Selected, peer reviewed papers from the 16th International Conference on Internal Friction and Mechanical Spectroscopy, (ICIFMS-16), July 3 – 8, 2011, Lausanne, Switzerland
The peer-reviewed papers in this special issue of Solid State Phenomena were selected from the 16th International Conference on Internal Friction and Mechanical Spectroscopy, ICIFMS-16, held on July 3 – 8, 2011, in Lausanne, Switzerland. The proceedings aimed at attracting newcomers to this field of research in order to appreciate the potential of anelastic methodologies in the investigation of advanced materials and new phenomena. Scientists who are already involved in the field will also find here ideas and inspiration for new experiments and theories.
Review from Book News Inc.: Drawn from papers delivered at the Sixteenth International Conference on Internal Friction and Mechanical Spectroscopy, held in Lausanne, Switzerland in July, 2011, this collection of articles on polymer science showcases current scholarship in a wide variety of materials engineering topics. Essays are grouped into categories covering point defect relaxation and diffusion, dislocation dynamics, grain boundaries, nanocrystaline structures and thin films, phase transformations, amorphous materials, and high and low dampening techniques. Additional sections include transcripts of guest speaker presentations from the conference. Articles include keywords, abstracts, illustrations, and formulas, and both keyword and author indexes are provided. Contributors are academics and researchers in solid state phenomena from institutions around the world.
