  This page intentionally left blank   Structure and Bonding in Crystalline Materials One ofthe motivating questions in materials research today is:how can elementsbe combined to produce a solid with specified properties? One part ofthe answerto this question lies in the fundamental relationship between the composition,structure and bonding in crystalline materials.This book is intended to acquaintthe reader with established principles ofcrystallography and bonding that areneeded to understand this relationship.The book starts with an introduction to periodic trends and then describesthe atomic structure ofcrystalline solids,the experimental interrogation ofcrys-talline structure,the srcin ofthe cohesive forces that stabilize crystalline struc-tures,and how these cohesive forces vary with the elements in the solid.The bookfinishes by describing a number ofmodels for predicting phase stability andstructure.Containing a large number ofworked examples,exercises,and detaileddescriptions ofnumerous crystal structures,this book is primarily intended asan advanced undergraduate or graduate level textbook for students ofmaterialsscience who are preparing to conduct research.However,it will also be useful toscientists and engineers who work with solid materials.G  S . R  is a Professor ofMaterials Science and Engineering atCarnegie Mellon University.Prof.Rohrer was born in Lancaster,PA,in 1962.Hereceived his bachelor’s degree in Physics fromFranklin and Marshall College in1984 and his Ph.D.in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 1989.At CMU,Prof.Rohrer is the director ofthe NSF spon-sored Materials Research Science and Engineering Center.His research isdirected toward understanding how the properties ofsurfaces and internal inter-faces are influenced by their geometric and crystallographic structure,their sto-ichiometry,and their defect structure.Prof.Rohrer is an associate Editor for theJournal ofthe American Ceramic Society and his research earned a NationalScience Foundation Young Investigator Award in 1994.
