This book represents a collection of 30 selected papers from the work of John W. Cahn. Dr. Cahn is Senior Fellow at the Materials Science and Engineering Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and is widely recognized as a founder of modern theory and thought in materials science. The range of his research included kinetics and mechanisms of metallurgical phase changes, surfaces, interfaces, defects, quasicrystals, thermodynamics, and other areas impacting the fundamental understanding of materials science. Each paper includes a 2-4 page review of the impact and historical perspective of the work. This is an important collection for students, instructors, and scientists interested in materials science.The present investigation was undertaken specifically to focus on these problems . ... controlled up-quenching experiments; c) the Cu-Zn phase diagram is well- documented and exhibits retrograde solubility of zinc in the a phase, Fig. ... A simple capacitor-discharge heater was constructed to bring the wire specimens quickly (~50 fisec) to the massive- reaction ... The heating circuit consisted essentially of a variable 2000- v dc power supply, two 200-jifarad 4000-v capacitors in parallel, anbsp;...
