Book Description

This book explains various kinds of non-ionizing and high energy radiations, their interaction with materials and chemical reactions, conditions of various kinds of materials development technologies including applications. It covers processing-structure-property relationship, radiations used in developing many advanced materials used in various fields. It highlights application-oriented materials synthesis and modification covering a wide variety of materials such plastics, rubber, thermo-set, ceramics and so forth by various radiations.


  • Explains ionizing and non-ionizing radiation assisted materials development technologies, for polymers, ceramics, metals, and carbons.
  • Covers radiation assisted synthesis, processing, and modification of all kinds of materials.
  • Provides comparative studies, merits, demerits, and applications very systematically.
  • Crisscrosses polymers science and technology, radiation technology, advanced materials technology, biomaterials technology and so forth.
  • Includes section on 3D printing by LASER melting of CoCr alloys.

This book is aimed at researchers and graduate students in Materials Science, Radiation Chemistry and Physics, Polymer and Other Materials Processing.
