Alicia Esther Ares is a professor of Materials Science at the Chemical Engineering Department, School of Sciences (FCEQyN), National University of Misiones (UNaM), Posadas, Misiones, Argentina, since December 2013. Also, she is an independent researcher at the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET), Argentina, since January 2015. Previously, she has been a research associate at CONICET (2008–2014) and an associate professor at UNaM (2007–2013). She has also been an assistant professor at UNaM (1989–2007). She graduated at the University of Misiones in 1992 and completed a PhD degree in Materials Science at the Institute of Technology “Jorge Sabato,” UNSAM–CNEA, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Later, she made a postdoctoral stays at the following institutions: Faculdade de Engenharía Mecânica, Departamento de Engenharía de Materiais, Universidade Estadual de Campinas, Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil (2001 and 2005–2006); Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida, United States (2002–2003); and Faculty of Sciences, National University of Misiones, Posadas, Misiones, Argentina (2003–2004). She has a 27-year teaching experience both at the undergraduate and at the graduate level. Her research interests lie in the following areas: Solidification thermal parameters, mechanical properties, and corrosion resistance of different alloys and composite materials Solidification structures and properties of alloys for hard tissue replacement Metallic materials selection for the management of biofuels Synthesis and characterization of nanostructured coatings, membranes, and templates of aluminum and zinc oxides Fabrication and characterization of nanostructured titanium and iron oxide coatings for water treatment systems based on advanced oxidative and reductive processes Natural products as corrosion inhibitors of metallic materials Her articles are published in well-established international and Argentinean journals.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Alicia Esther Ares

X-ray scattering techniques are a family of nondestructive analytical techniques. Using these techniques, scientists obtain information about the crystal structure and chemical and physical properties of materials. Nowadays, different techniques are based on observing the scattered intensity of an X-ray beam hitting a sample as a function of incident and scattered angle, polarization, and wavelength. This book is intended to give overviews of the relevant X-ray scattering techniques, particularly about inelastic X-ray scattering, elastic scattering, grazing-incidence small-angle X-ray scattering, small-angle X-ray scattering, and high-resolution X-ray diffraction, and, finally, applications of X-ray spectroscopy to study different biological systems.
