The Interplay of Composition, Temperature and Pressure
The work presents borate crystal chemistry in correlation to composition, ambient conditions, high-temperature and high-pressure.
Aims and Scope
Since the early days of civilization borates have been among the most interesting compounds. Even today the minerals are most valuable for the production of ceramics high-performance glasses, whereas synthetic borates became essential in the laser technology.
The work presents the excellent optical and physical properties of borates and discuss the broad field of technical applications.
