Writing for scientists, engineers, and graduate students, researchers in nanometer, biological, and environmental sciences explore theoretical and experimental aspects of electrical phenomena
at interfaces in their specialties.
In the course of the mathematical investigation, attention was thus directed to a new measurable quantity, which has become the most widely used in the theory of electrical phenomena.
Electrical measurements have contributed not only to the formation of our clear insight into electrical phenomena, which was formerly so naive.
In the mid-eighteenth century, electrical phenomena associated with rubbing of, or friction at, insulators could be reproducibly generated by means of electrical devices (e.
In fact, this conclusion, of major sig nificance for chemistry and the physics of electrical phenomena, was not reached for some 47 years later when von Helmholtz, in his Faraday Memorial Lecture of 1881  announced this conclusion.
The major research topics in this field have included explanations of the electrical phenomena
, which involve percolation, positive temperature coefficient (PTC), and negative temperature coefficient (NTC) of electrical resistivity (5-14).
It recorded readings on temperature, magnetic fields, the search for electrical phenomena
called auroras and studies of the charged particles surrounding Europa.
A renewed interest in the role played by electrical phenomena
in adhesion has nevertheless been shown by Legressus and co-workers in France.
Three other divisions complete Suh's organization: Chemical, Biochemical and Thermal Engineering, which deals with the transformation and transport of energy and matter; Mechanics, Structures and Materials Engineering, including geotechnology and building systems; and Electrical, Communications and Systems Engineering, related to basic electrical phenomena
and the synthesis and analysis of devices.
36 Applications of Electrical Phenomena
in Membranes and Membrane Separation Processes
Colloid and surface science research spans a wide range of topics, including biological interactions at surfaces, molecular assembly of selective surfaces, and electrical phenomena
in interfacial and disperse systems.
Broad in scope, its 47 chapters present a concise, condensed sequence of physical principles linking macroscopic mechanical, thermal, and electrical phenomena
to their microscopic quantum origin, statistical description, and atomic structure.
