Stability is one of the most important performances required for silver halide photographic materials. In 1935, Dr. E. 1. Birr introduced the concept of the stabilization ofphotographic emulsions for the first time by inventing a most effective stabilizer, 4-oxo-6-methyl-l,3,3a,7-tetraazaindene (TAl). Dr. Birr's monograph Stabilization ofPhotographic Silver Halide Emulsions was published in 1974,and accepted as a reliable reference book by many photographic scientists and engineers. Since then, silver halide photographic materials have been greatly improved and expanded through active and continual development of various kinds of technologies. Especially, extensive efforts have been made to develop photographic materials with high sensitivity and rapid processing, which rely upon the stability ofphotographic emulsions under various conditions. Thus, the concept and technologies of stabilization ofphotographic silver halide materials have been expanded so extensively that many photographic scientists and engineers eagerly want a reliable, new reference book on the stabilization of photographic emulsions. Dr. Gunther Fischer is one of the most experienced and eminent scientists and engineers in the field of the stabilization of photographic materials with expanded concept. He has been involved in research on the stabilization of pho tographic emulsions since 1964 when he joined the Technical Scientific Laboratory in the Research and Development Department of the Photo Film Company Agfa Wolfen formerly headed by Dr. Birr, whom he succeeded in that position. I was deeply impressed by his fruitful and elaborate achievements in these fields.

Glass Nanocomposites: Synthesis, Properties and Applications provides the latest information on a rapidly growing field of specialized materials, bringing light to new research findings that include a growing number of technologies and applications. With this growth, a new need for deep understanding of the synthesis methods, composite structure, processing and application of glass nanocomposites has emerged. In the book, world renowned experts in the field, Professors Karmakar, Rademann, and Stepanov, fill the knowledge gap, building a bridge between the areas of nanoscience, photonics, and glass technology. The book covers the fundamentals, synthesis, processing, material properties, structure property correlation, interpretation thereof, characterization, and a wide range of applications of glass nanocomposites in many different devices and branches of technology. Recent developments and future directions of all types of glass nanocomposites, such as metal-glasses (e.g., metal nanowire composites, nanoglass-mesoporous silica composites), semiconductor-glass and ceramic-glass nanocomposites, as well as oxide and non-oxide glasses, are also covered in great depth. Each chapter is logically structured in order to increase coherence, with each including question sets as exercises for a deeper understanding of the text. Provides comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge and literature review for both the oxide and non-oxide glass nanocomposites (i.e., practically all types of glass nanocomposites) Reviews a wide range of synthesis types, properties, characterization, and applications of diverse types of glass nanocomposites Presents future directions of glass nanocomposites for researchers and engineers, as well as question sets for use in university courses

This is the first comprehensive book for all aspects of monodispersed particles, consisting of four parts: Part 1 for the fundamentals of the elementary processes; Part 2 for the preparation of monodispersed particles, including the general principles, explanations of almost all known monodispersed systems on the basis of their classification, and techniques for controlling their mean size, shape, internal structure, composition, heterojunction, surface modification, etc.; Part 3 for the analytical methods for the formation processes and the characterization of monodispersed products; Part 4 for applications of monodispersed particles to fundamental studies and practicle uses, such as photographic materials, ceramics, catalysts, magnetic recording materials, pigments, cosmetics, biological and medical devices, etc. This book not only covers the most of known uniform particles, including inorganic and polymer particles and their composites, from nanometers to a few hundreds of micrometers, but also compiles numerous references about 2000. While this book is organized from the fundamentals to the ultimate levels, the text is replete with new theories, developed for this book, and novel ideas of the author's own interpretation on the formation mechanisms throughout the whole volume. In this sense, this is a unique book, as entirely different from ordinary textbooks. Since the functions and dynamic behaviours of particles strongly depend on their size, well-defined monodispersed particles are ideal particulate materials for advanced devices as well as models for fundamental studies of colloid science. This may be the sheer reason for the persistent demands for the advent of a comprehensive book focussed on this subject.
