Vibrational Thermodynamics of Materials
by Brent Fultz
Publisher: Caltech 2009
Number of pages: 145
The literature on vibrational thermodynamics of materials is reviewed. The emphasis is on metals and alloys, especially on the progress over the last decade in understanding differences in the vibrational entropy of different alloy phases and phase transformations. Some results on carbides, nitrides, oxides, hydrides and lithium-storage materials are also covered.
