About this book


Diffusion as the process of particle transport due to stochastic
movement is a phenomenon of crucial relevance for a large
variety of processes and materials. This comprehensive, handbook-
style survey of diffusion in condensed matter gives detailed
insight into diffusion as the process of particle transport due to
stochastic movement. Leading experts in the field describe in
23 chapters the different aspects of diffusion, covering microscopic
and macroscopic experimental techniques and exemplary
results for various classes of solids, liquids and interfaces as well as
several theoretical concepts and models. Students and scientists
in physics, chemistry, materials science, and biology will benefit
from this detailed compilation.
